Sounds like a beacon.

There's a few ways to check this. Modern beacons shouldn't open a port unless it gets a response to that beacon, so the old netstat check doesn't mean as much as it used to.

Some suggestions:
  • Check services and make sure that you don't have anything running that shouldn't be. This is MUCH harder on W10 than previous versions, since a lot of valid services have really sketchy names.
  • Check the system Task Scheduler and see if any odd executables are set on, say, a 10 min repeating schedule.
  • If your AV isn't picking anything up, you might want to run a rootkit scan against the system.
  • You can also crack open MS SysInternals Process Explorer and start looking for signs of code injection in a privileged process. lsass has historically been a very common target for hackers.
