Is this is not a BOT and no need to take action to remove this?

Hi @pra838 ,

 

I believe a user trapsanalyzer1 is normal and created by Cortex XDR endpoint protection (or previously traps).

When a file needs to be analyzed it will give the task to "analyzerd".  The job of it is to analyze the file and return a verdict.

 

Hope this helps,

Thank You So much ...!💪

 

But what is the connection established to UK IPs.

  • And what is about Virustotal and VTGraphs.

Do you have any idea about it?
