McAfee Endpoint Helper attempting to install?

Anyone have an Idea why a host with ENS 10.6.1 might be attempting to install McAfee Endpoint Helper? It has been registered in Privilege Management Software trying escalate admin permissions. It appears to be somehow associated with Endpoint Security but I have not heard about it before,

Re: McAfee Endpoint Helper attempting to install?

Hi @HugsNotDrugs ,

Thankyou for reaching us on community!

Can you please help us with some more information as to what was the alert triggered in "Privilege Management Software " and did it point to any executable file ?

Also, can you please help mw with the version of endpoint security installed in the machine ?

Is there any other McAfee products installed in the same machine apart form endpoint security ?

The action is initiated by the MfeEpAac.exe and mfeepaac_mfeprotect.exe located in the user profile temp folder. No other products are installed. Version is April Update.
