Why http microsoft connection in netstat check?

I checked established connections with "netstat" command in command prompt, and I found that there are some connections with ip’s of microsoft (I checked ip online) that have http (and not https) connection established, they bring to some svchost.exe in a Win32 folder of the system. I know that http connections are not safe, but I guess they are safe since they have microsoft ip, but why these connections are not encrypted (http)? Is it normal?

Can Microsoft access the contents of my OneDrive Personal Vault?

I found the article to be quite informative that addresses the question "Can Microsoft access my private files?" (Can Microsoft access all private data if a user installs Windows 10?), which includes my OneDrive files, but it didn’t specifically mention the special folder called Personal Vault. Does Microsoft have just as much capability of accessing the contents of my Personal Vault as it does all my other OneDrive files, or is Personal Vault an exception?

Repeated microsoft password reset requests


Background

Since the middle of last month, I have started recieving multiple microsoft password reset e-mails a day, sent to my secondary e-mail address, regarding my primary e-mail address.

These e-mails have no phishing-like links in. I believe them to be a legiitimate password reset e-mails. Which means someone is repeatedly trying to reset my password.

There appear to be no (recognizable) attempts to break into my secondary e-mail account.

Both accounts have 2FA enabled, and have randomly generated 30+ character passwords generated by and stored in a password manager. The primary account has enforced 72-day password changes enabled.

Questions

1.) Is it likely the attacks are just trying to guess the 7 digit security code each time. Or is something more sinsiter likely going on?

2.) In cases like this, is it any way to say that, no, I did NOT request such a reset. (Note: I’m wary that it is possible that only someone working at Microsoft might be able to answer this. If this IS the case, please ignore this part of the question)

Is Microsoft Forms adequately secure to collect personal health information? [closed]

I want to make a survey on a website using Microsoft Forms. Patients would input personal health information into this form, so I want it to be secure.

The Microsoft website indicates that Microsoft Forms is HIPAA and BAA compliant, which sounds great; however, when I dig deeper, I don’t really find what I want to see in plain English.

Can information submitted over Microsoft Forms be read by someone other than me, the website owner?
