    Certificate error

    Below a message that pops up every time I visit RFO. It states as much as 'The display of content with security certificate errors is being blocked by Internet Explorer. I'm using IE9 most of the time, is this a known error?

    Well, it´s known now... but I´ve never seen it before... I´ll get a hold of the engineers at the hosting center! Thanks for the heads up.

    Edit: Weird... just got a certificate error in Outlook when I sent the email to the host... But am confident that they´ll fix it shortly, even though it´s only 7:21 in London.

      I suspect it may have to do with this. I think some browsers have already blacklisted either the actual stolen certificates, or any from the compromised CAs. And given how many got stolen it could take a while for hosting services and such to get new certificates, likely from another CA. But given that in addition to Comodo & DigiNotar the hacker is claiming to have compromised other CAs as well, which CA does one trust?

      Gonna be an interesting few weeks I think, as this all shakes out. And the whole validity of CA based security is surely in question now.

          Yeah, kinda crazy how one country's internal politics can impact so much of the rest of the world. It occurs to me that it might be worth letting the host know about the certificate error, just in case their CA has not even let them know their cert was compromised. They are so on top of things they almost certainly already know, but better safe than sorry.

            Thanks - Just emailed the link to them. And searched thru the complete list of all known compromised certificates, and the only .uk domain that came up was sis.gov.uk - (Secret Intelligence Service). So hopefully it´s not related...

              Curious to see how soon you hear back. These are the moments when the cream rises to the top. I am just glad we are not a likely target. First saw this this morning on Arstechnica and didn't even really think about the potential impact. Until ikinks' post.

                Yup, these guys made a mess of things. It's all over the news here (diginotar is dutch). Seems like their own security was real crap (no updated virusscanner, and so on). Oh, the irony....

                  Within the first hour of their regular office hours! (Did not sent it as urgent)
                  They are on it... so let´s see what they find, and how bad it is, or if it´s just a minor issue.

                    FYI: Took a little while to narrow down the issue, due to communication between ikinks, the host and myself.

                    But it´s been concluded that the issue is related only to ikinks, and only when using Explorer (No errors using Firefox).
                    So thankfully, it doesn´t seem to be related to the stolen certificates.

                    Case closed.
