Working with the Trust Center
Checking for the Red X
W hen you are checking the certificates associated with files you receive, be on the
lookout for the red X. A digital certificate displayed with a red X might mean the
certificate is unauthenticated or cannot be verified. A red X can also indicate the
following security issues associated with a certificate:
Someone has tampered with the signed file.
The certificate was not issued by a trusted certification authority.
The certificate was issued without verification (such as a free certificate authority
trial download).
The certificate was invalid when it was used to sign the file or macros.
When you see a certificate with a red X, proceed with caution. This is a clear sign that
something about the certificate is amiss.
