What doesn't Virtual Private Networking do?

Virtual private networking does not secure your machine against attacks from the internet.  Data is only encrypted between you and the University network.  This means that it cannot be monitored while in transit.  Once it leaves the University network, it is no longer encrypted by the VPN?, and may be eavesdropped on as much as any other traffic (unless encrypted by other methods).
