    lsass.exe is a legitimate windows process. There happens to be a trojan with the same name. Run a scan with your AV if you have doubts.

    lsass.exe is normal
    lsasss.exe is the blaster virus/worm

    Please don't correct me - especially when you don't know what you are talking about.

    In addition to being a normal windows file, lsass.exe also can be the Windang.worm, irc.ratsou.b, Webus.B, MyDoom.L, Randex.AR, Nimos.worm (which spread via floppy disk drives, mass-mailing and peer-to-peer sharing)
