Security Certificate Revoked

Post by Fairynuff » Sat Feb 09, 2019 5:46 pm

This evening, each time I log in (on any device) I get a pop up saying Security Certificate Revoked, This site is not safe. And no matter how much I delete it, it comes back.

Not getting that message. It must be your devices.

It seems to be a Microsoft issue. I am not sure if it was ever explained.

No issues for me using Windows 10 on a Surface Pro.

If your OS or browser are ancient/unpatched, this could happen (ie your trust store has not been updated in a long time).
Or perhaps you've got some kind of infection that getting in the middle.

If you can, update your OS, use latest browser version. Or use a different browser.

As others have pointed out, the certificate used to identify and encrypt traffic from this website is fine (well, it is from feb 2 to may 3 2019 anyway).

I've got a desk-top on W7 and a laptop on W8 both on latest version of IE11 the desk-top has NIS the laptop uses windows defender and I get the SCR pop up on both. I have an ipad and I don't get it on that. I can uncheck the box in IE and disable it checking for all revoked certs but I'd rather not do that. Google tell me I should be able to find and look at the certificate in advanced options, I can see many certificates there but can't identify this forums certificate - how do I identify this forums certificate?

I gave up on Explorer quite a while back (I think it was IE9 or IE 10) on my main PC. So many conflicts, certificate warnings,

All modern browsers will tell you the certificate (indeed the whole trust chain) by clicking on the padlock or other device the browser uses.
I don't use IE except on some ancient work Windows 7 devices, so can't say more on that. But you seem comfortable googling, so that will probably help you out here.

But do yourself a favour and use almost any browser except IE: Chrome, Firefox, Opera... anything really.

If it still happens, then they are using your operating system's trust stores/certificates, in which case you probably need a different kind of forum for help :)

It seems to have stopped. I haven't done anything / changed anything but the pop ups aren't popping up now . . . another one of life's mysteries.
