What does my windows security alert mean?
Posted on 2014-03-03
My University account has been behaving strangely recently with a certain pattern to it, namely that 'important' contacts have been assigned to Junk Mail. This is impossible for me to do without making a deliberate decision and I haven't done this. So it seems likely someone has been able to access my password.
The other day I logged on to my account at the Uni and tried to access a powerpoint file and I got the following message:
"Windows Security Alert: The connection attempt could not be completed."
It then gave the following information:
Radius server: itstrad1.bham.ac.uk
Root CA: AddTrust External CA Root
"The server "itstrad1.bham.ac.uk" is not configured as a valid NPS server to connect to for this profile"
Is this hacking/phishing? And if so, what can I do to discover who is doing it?
