This problem is related to our use of a SSL (Secure Socket) Certificate for our off-campus access. It most often happens when using Microsoft's Internet Explorer as the browser. It is nothing to be alarmed about and does not constitute a threat to your machine.

There are two fixes:
Each session: Simply click the "Yes" button to continue.
Permanent Fix:
1. at the top of the browser window, click on "Tools" and then "Internet Options..."
2. click on tab labeled "Security"
3. click on the button labeled "Custom Level..."
4. find the heading "Miscellaneous"
5. at the subheading for "Display mixed content" click the radio button to turn on "Enable"
6. click the button labeled "OK"
