All of our domain accounts keep getting locked out numerous times during the day for the past couple of days.  In the event log on a DC, there are constant audit failures, event ID 4662:

Doesn't really show where it's coming from.  Seems like probably a brute force attack.  Any ideas on how to nail this down?  Thanks.

You probably have Downadup.B worm.

Read this document from symantec on how to remove it. http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2009-011316-0247-99

This sounds like malware  last year there was a lot of these and it was conficker  http://blogs.technet.com/b/rhalbheer/archive/2009/01/13/additional-information-on-conficker-msrt-removing-conficker.aspx

Not saying you have it but start scanning the network.  If it was one or two accounts there are other troubleshooting methods but almost every account being randomly locked out is a different thing.

Thanks

Mike
