USER ID Lateral Movement reported

L0 Member

We have USER-ID Agent installed on 2 Domain Controllers, using a Service account to authenticate to the Domain referencing the Workstations (Laptops)

We use Rapid7 InsightIDR for our SEIM solution and USER-ID on a DC to authenticate/identify Workstation details.


The SEIM is flagging USER-ID traffic from a Workstation to another Workstation as 'authenticated to asset from unfamiliar source'


Can anyone advise;


If this is expected behavior or something that should not be happening. i.e. 

    OR just between DC and Workstation
How can I stop this from happening or is this by design?

Many thanks

Out of curiosity, how are you identifying this as actual User-ID traffic? I'm assuming what you're seeing is WMI traffic and associating this with user-id?
