    on what hardware?

    lsass.exe on Win10 sending data to Amazon/CloudFront server port 80 ?

    I'm running Windows 10 Home, fully updated. Malwarebytes, MRT.exe, SpybotSD, and Symantec Endpoint all report zero problems.

    Yesterday, C:\Windows\System32\lsass.exe tried to send data to a cloudfront.net server, TCP port 80. I haven't seen this before and would have noticed. Reading an overview of that service, it shouldn't need to send data anywhere, much less to a non-Microsoft server. Does Microsoft really utilize Amazon's Cloudfront network for this service, and does it seem reasonable that the local security service is sending data elsewhere (and for me to allow it)?

    Ok, it looks like this is the Battleye service, every time it is started. Kinda curious what data they send to themselves from lsass.exe, but that seems to be it.
