Compromised Account

A compromised account is an account with login details known by one or more unauthorized individuals. At UWM, these accounts may be identitifed by either our UWM Information Security Office or by Microsoft.  Symptoms of compromised accounts include sending spam emails, or sending unusual volumes of emails. 

Once an account has been identified as having been compromised, the password for the account will be scrambled, and the account holder will require assistance from the Help Desk to unlock the account.
