Hi all,

every single account on my domain was just locked out with event ID 4740 and the caller computer name came from a machine in another office for all events

what is the caller computer name? the computer that made the lockout happen?

are we being attacked internally?

Thansk for a speedy response

ok run kk on that computer

came back with the below!

thats the only machine i didnt put kaspersky on it,

running kaspersky nearly killed the machines power its that old
will have to replace it or put it back on and the user will have to cope with a slow machine!

how does kido generally get on the machine?
USB, download?

Thanks for your help

you have to know that no one AV is NOT 100% guarantee =)
so it's doesn't matter how kido gets you.
use Windows Update, always use it, and it will be more safe to you and your company =)
