Multiple create and delete admin account?

Hi everyone

I have seen many create and delete admin account logs with 4720 and 4726 Event ID with MCAFEE$ account. it's abnormal  but these logs generated in every 90 minutes. I have IDS that generate alarms about "short lived account detected". do you have any ideas about it?

Greetings from Rancho San Diego,

Have you contacted support directly? The message that you mentioned above may be a warning / marker of some malicious activity. I found this answer in Splunk Security Essentials Docs.
