Probably the lsass.exe process only "probed" the frameworkservice.exe withTerminate privileges, it doesn't necessarily mean that lsass.exe in reality tried to terminate the service.

The KB below describes a similar issue with ccmexec.exe.

As per McAfee default "/system32/lsass.exe" is on the excluded processes list for this Access Protection rule.

This is saying that lsass.exe tried to terminate frameworkservice.exe, but was blocked from so doing.
