Exploit Process Blocked wscript


Recommended Posts

Have one user that I receive around ten reports a day with the following:

Alert Time: 8/17/2016 6:29:50 AM

Server Hostname: XXXXXXXXX

Server Domain/Workgroup: my.company.com Server IP: 172.XXX.XXX.XXX Notification Catalog: Client


Exploit threat detected, see details below:


8/17/2016 6:28:45 AM  IT-12-03                172.XXX.XXX.XXX     Exploit payload process blocked BLOCK                C:\Windows\system32\wscript


I have regular scans scheduled and running but nothing else shows up. Did a search in the forum and did not find anything. Looking for ideas please and thank you

Thank you,
