For the past few weeks I've been getting alerts from my firewall about outbound emails.

This is what it says:
Outbound Email Protection

Windows NT Logon Applications has violated outbound email rules. Do you want to allow this message to be sent?

It the lists the application (winlogon.exe
Violation: more than 5 messages in 2 seconds
Destination: various random email addresses

Then the firewall asks if I would like to allow the message to go out.

I of course deny it, but I have no idea who the destination email address belong to or where to even begin.
