I recently upgraded my AV to Kaspersky 6 MP4 and now have access to "Training Mode" in the firewall. I've been playing around with it seeing if I can get the rules set so that Kaspersky would not hinder my users unnecessarily.

I've noticed one very(?) strange thing. I've found that C:\Windows\System32\LSASS.exe is trying to periodically contact a server in the MSECN.net domain. Does anyone know why? So far my google-fu has let me down. (And, yes, I've made sure LSASS is int its proper location & its version in case of malware)

Thanks!
