Hi, I have issue with random Windows 10 PC in the network scanning for port 445/137. The issue would come back on some PC even after I've done a Windows 10 Reset or install a fresh copy from a Windows 10 image. All the PC are installed with KasperSky Endpoint 11 & it did not pick up any abnormally at all. Those suspicious PC has been scanned with Malwarebytes as well before I do the reset/reinstalling of Windows. I've blocked port 445/137 on my firewall thus I'm seeing port scanning coming from these PC to WAN but all the IP are invalid local IP range that don't exist on my network.
