Reviewing DNS logs within my company I've found a lot of weird DNS requests from a machine involving what it seems a DGA scheme as shown below (real IP has been obfuscated):

04/07/2017 13:36:47 12C8 PACKET 0000000005492E80 UDP Rcv x.x.x.x 615f Q [0001 D NOERROR] A (4)ipv6(8)msftncsi(3)com(0)

I'm aware ipv6.msftncsi.com is used by Microsoft to check connectivity but no idea about the other internal ones (probably a host/service discovery process?).

In the first place I believe there could be a malware infection behind this but no evidences have been found.

My question is, could be a windows process/service behind these requests?
