Explanation

An attempt was made to change the password of the target user account. The message indicates whether the attempt was successful. The person or process changing
the password provided the old password. Because the user can change the password without logging on, the Caller User Name might be shown as “anonymous.”

   
User Action

If a single account has several password-change failures logged, it might be under a password-guessing attack. Verify that such an attack is not occurring. Otherwise, no user action is required.

If a single account has several password-change attempts logged, the user might be trying to circumvent password-history policy.
