Skip to comments.Scary Alert when I signed on to FR (vanity)
Posted on 04/18/2020 11:27:52 AM PDT by sodpoodle
Did a full McAfee scan yesterday. Had not signed on to FR for a few days. (no jokes)..
Could not copy & paste this 'warning'.
What does it mean? Has anyone else had this?
I get it on Firefox so I use the old internet explorer. to connect.
What did the warning say?
I’m not saying it’s aliens, but...
Something to do with SSL security certificate problems they’re working to fix.
Expired security cert.
So this warning that you couldn’t cut and paste, what was it?
From the FR Facebook page, I hope this helps.

We are in the process of renewing our SSL security certificate and there appears to be a technical glitch

Something went wrong during the update process and we’re trying to work it out now with their tech support dept. Hopefully, this will be very soon, meanwhile we may get security warnings on our site.
Hang in there.
Btw, You can get there temporarily without the ‘s’ in https:
Its nothing, a “certificate error” that should be fixed soon.
Did it say unsecure site or something like that and not let you in???
Thats an expired SSL certificate warning. The secure socket layer cert expired yesterday. Looks like its been renewed because Im no longer seeing it. Its not a big deal.
This is the URL I copied:
I could not copy the ‘notice’.
I had a warning yesterday and this am. I had never seen it before. I could not get on the site late yesterday and early this morning. I don’t know much about it or how I got around it.
“Expired security cert.”
Yeah that was it. Thanks to all posters.
Your computer has been infected with the Corona virus.
I got it on my Kindle Fire tablet.
It’s BS. Ignore it.
You need to shut it off for 14 days.
Looking forward to seeing you post here again on May 2.
