suspicious 0x0 Login ID and behavior in 4624 Security Event Viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is the following 4624 Security Event on a Windows 10 network Client something to be concerned about?
    Could a local Service or process generate this logon?
    It starts with a 4672 'special Logon' , with the 4624 directly after and a 4634 Logoff one second after.

    I am concerned about the lack of identifying information in the subject and the NULL SID , 0x0 Login ID and The Impersonation Level:  of  'Impersonation'

    I should also add that directly after the Logon event, there is a Logoff.

    I X'd out the username and Domain name below.

    Any information to educate would be much appreciated!

    This event is generated when a logon session is created. It is generated on the computer that was accessed.

    The New Logon fields indicate the account for whom the new logon was created, i.e. the account that was logged on.
    The network fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.
    The impersonation level field indicates the extent to which a process in the logon session can impersonate.
    The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.
     - Logon GUID is a unique identifier that can be used to correlate this event with a KDC event.

     - Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.
     - Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested.
