What is "oasis2 service", and to do about it?

Have just purchased and started using a new laptop, a Sony VAIO VPCZ1290S with Windows 7 Ultimate.  So far all is working well and looks like a great machine, but have one concern.  After installing McAfee, it asked me to allow ""oasis2 service 1.0" to access the internet.  Someone suggested it was Sony software, so contacted Sony e-mail customer service to confirm that.  But Sony came back with an e-mail saying that "Oasis2 service is not a Sony preinstalled program and it is a Spyware or Adware-like program designed to disrupt or stop the normal running of a Web site, server, or other Network resource". The person suggested that I "scan the Computer regularly using Virus and Spyware/Adware scanning Software to detect and remove possible Viruses and Spyware on the Computer System".  But a full scan with McAfee does not come up with anything.


So what is "oasis2 service 1.0" and, if it is what the Sony customer service says it is, why does McAfee not pick it up?  And what does it do and what should one do about it?   For now am blocking its access and all seems to be functioning OK.
