  • Chrome and Firefox: invalid security certificate warnings for the zen forums

    First time I have seen untrusted website warnings for the forums.

    I get them almost every time through Chrome and even Opera, just ignore it

      I got this for the first time today also. I risked coming here anyway. But the forums look different now. Was there a redesign of the website? It's white now and it used to be black. Also, the layout is just a little different and it feels weird.

        I was on the forums early this morning and I got a database error. It looks like they backed everything up, but their custom skin was lost.

        Edit: Just noticed the vBB update at the bottom.

            My "most recent read messages" data seems to have been reset as well unfortunately. Oh well, I think I'll survive.

            (well, not exactly "reset"; most previously existing threads are marked as fully read by me, even though there are new posts since last time I looked)

                  I started getting this certificate error in IE 8 when I tried to get to this forum yesterday and it is still happening now:

                  The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.
                  The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

                  So it isnt just chrome and firefox.

                    I'm pretty sure the site is currently using an internally generated (self-signed) x509 certificate rather than one issued by a known third party. The certificate says it was issued by [email protected], from Zen.

                    You can get a cheap cert that should be fine for this purpose for ~ $10 (e.g. from Comodo or others)

                    (er, by "You" I mean "whoever maintains this site")

                        I get that too now, and I've always gotten it with the blog for some reason.

                          In Firefox you can "add an exception" for this site and it wont bother you with certificate warnings again.

                          But yeah not a good way to update the site folks. You should inform users that your going to do so. I have had to reset my password because the site was updated, my browser wont login to the site properly without "remembering" the password. New site means insecure browsing so new password for the time being.
