I received an email today from firstname.lastname@example.org saying “We detected suspicious activity at NVIDIA Developer from the ip:… If that is your IP address click here to unblock it. Otherwise disregard this email. Clarification: Your account is not blocked, only access to it from the aforementioned IP.”
I did click to unblock because the IP address is from the city of our corporate office through which our network traffic routes (on the other side of the country).
I don’t think I’ve changed my access pattern any in the past 6 months. Has something changed? Can’t I use my developer account when I’m out of the office?
Can someone point me to a policy statement or explain what might have happened? (I was using the account offsite in the morning.) Or, where should I direct my questions?
The email also stated:
“If you did not make this request, please contact us by replying to this mail.
I tried, but, doh, this is from a “noreply” address that apparently doesn’t accept messages.
