Certificate error


Recommended Posts

I've having  some troubles to connect to the forum. Apparently, some security certificate expired. Chrome just prevents me to connect. The Microsoft browser warns me that this is not safe... I wanted to attach the Chrome screen but apparently some script has been disabled.

Hi McCoy and Sibiriak!


The problem is, that the CR Society Forums is supposed to be a secure website -- with URL starting with "https:\\" rather than "http:\\".  I tried Google chrome, then Opera -- neither enabled me to complete this simple post.  I am currently using Firefox -- happily, this browser (which used to be my preferred browser before I switched to Chrome) allowed me to add a PERMANENT EXCEPTION, allowing me (I believe) to use the Forums without problems (I don't think anything that I post on the Forums is a security threat to me.  Theoretically, a malicious intruder could learn my CR Society password, and post in my name, or edit my posts.  This doesn't seem to be a real problem to me.  The old CR Society mailing lists were not secure.)


So I recommend using Firefox, until the CR Society board member who takes car of the website fixes the problem.

Happily, the individual who selflessly maintains the CR Society website has fixed the problem!


I guess that he renewed the security certificate -- which of course costs some money, paid for by the CR Society, but is obviously necessary.  


Thanks Tim!
