LSASS.EXE..... Firewall telling me it want's access.
Posted 13 February 2009 - 02:20 AM
Now, what the heck is this....??? Did downloading autopatcher change some stuff on my computer?
Did some hacker hack into my system the short time autopatcher was downloading stuff? I'm not finding any infection.
Thing is, is my system was totally set..... My firewall shouldn't be warning me about anything, it's already trained.
That tells me Autopatcher has likely done something to my system??? I doubt a hacker had fun so quick, especially I still had Spyware Doctor running, so it should have detected any funny business more than likely.
So, what's the beef???

No one on these forums would ever encourage running your PC without a firewall,
and would likely tell you to find another way to update your PC if you had to run
without anything in place just to use AutoPatcher.
If you don't even know what or how AutoPatcher and APUP are or how they work,
why are you using the software?
"YOU" downloaded a zip file, unzipped it to a folder, "YOU" downloaded files Directly
from Microsoft.com" and "AutoPatcher.com" (check the scripts for the file download
locations) and now they are sitting in a folder - thats it!
Hackers can be malicious or if you are lucky, just toy with a system, but it happens when you
make yourself vulnerable, like you did, and not by using AutoPatcher.
trying to help other members, and it is painful to hear about problems and frustrations folks have with their
machines, especially when they have important work to get done, but this issue is "self-inflicted" if a problem
I use ZoneAlarm Pro, every new AutoPatcher module I create I have to add new settings in ZoneAlarm's
"Program Control" so it will allow APUP to connect without being hindered. Maybe your firewall recognized a
new process and was trying to figure out how to monitor it - who knows.

APUP connects to the internet and downloads files. It never installs anything.
The lsass.exe file is located in the c:\windows\System32 folder. In other cases, lsass.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm!
Please read the FAQ, we have posted many times that you do not turn off Outpost, you re-configure the Content Filtering.

Anyway, yes, I guess I didn't update myself on all the "latest" nuances.
And no.... It doesn't appear to be the worm.
Anyway, was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts other then the "obvious" gut reaction put downs.

APUP messed up your system - as your first post for a "long time user"?
above, why not ask for some assistance instead of blasting an "app" you were using
improperly? Should I say your reaction was one from the "GUT?"
I have no pride so I will say, "If I over-reacted and misunderstood your intention" I
apologize, but you seem to be the type that hits in the face and takes issue when you
are hit back. I looked closely at your post and I don't see any instances of the word
I'm done with this post!
