The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security

I got the above error when trying to access a network share on a workstation. The event log was filled with Cifs and netlogon errors.  In doing some investigation I found that this machine had a manually set DNS entry which pointed to a former DC that had been demoted. What was interesting is that DNS resolution still worked (cached entries) but because it wasn’t authorized in AD the machine was getting cifs errors.

    In my case, this error was caused by my MaxToken size. You can download the tokensz tool from Microsoft, or simply remove yourself from some groups. There is also a Registry fix to increase MaxToken size.
