Running script triggers outbound connection to Verisign.com

Post by StupidSexyFlanders » Mon Sep 03, 2012 2:30 pm

Running a script in STA32 Elevated and discovered that the script is attempting to connect to 199.7.57.72, which resolves to OCSP.TKO2.VERISIGN.COM. According to my firewall logs, the process behind the attempted connection is "scriptdriver32Elevated.exe" in the "C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesSAPIEN Debugger 2012" directory.

What is this file attempting to do? Is it required for elevated scripts to run?

Thanks
Mike

scriptdriver32elevated.exe asks for elevation. As per Microsoft's rules the executable is signed with our code signing signature. All our executables are. Windows will of course verify that signature with the issuing authority. Which is verisign in our case.
