Default Should i allow taskhost.exe internet connections?

Hello, a Comodo firewall asks me if it should allow taskhost.exe to connect the internet. I googled and im unsure if it cant become a hole in my system if i allow its connections as MS support engineer said "The Taskhost.exe accesses the internet depending on the service it is hosting". So ti is a gateway for more apps, which apps?
