Win10 version 1709.16299.98 running on a Dell Inspiron 5559 laptop, under a Standard User Account.
This morning I received a UAC popup requesting permission to run the following:
- Local Hash DBUpdater by Sutherland Global Systems.
I denied the request.
I Googled the string "Local Hash....etc." and got zero hits.
I ran a Malwarebytes scan and a Norton Security scan which returned no malicious items.
I also ran a scan with FRST and the log shows the following running process:
- (Sutherland Global Services, Inc) c:\ProgramFiles\Dell\SupportAssistAgent\SRE\SRE.exe
The above is the only reference to "Sutherland" in the FRST logs and there were no warnings in the logs. Task Manager shows that sre.exe is, in fact, running on the machine and I know that Dell Support Assist has been installed on this computer.
Anyone ever heard of "Local Hash DB Updater" or anything similar? Is it malicious?
Thank you for any feedback.
