Security Warning! with Atari-Forum website?

Post by DarkLord »

Okay, tried to login this evening and got a security warning.

I had to force it to continue to the website... Anyone else
getting this? Thanks....

There was a warning about the certificate having expired when I connected and I had to manually say I wanted to connect anyway, so probably nothing more than the certificate having to be renewed.

Yes the SSL certificate is expiring on 23 May 2022. Hopefully one can be generated soon enough by the admins/ @Dal

I've let Dal know.

Awesome, thanks. I figured since I was able to make it on,
it was something like that- nothing major.

Gotta have my daily Atari-Forum fix you know! :)

Chrome/ium gives me warning for *every* page, and forces me to do do advance->proceed on all of them (e.g. to post this one, I needed to do it several times, along with "Confirm for re-submission" confirmations resulting from that).

Huh, that seems strange to me. This was just one instance and it's not
done it since then...

The https access is secure by a TLS certificate from DigiCert Inc. This is simply expired. This can be fixed just by an admin. I'd recommend to automate this process with Letsencrypt certificates.

Just use chrome in Incognito mode. It will ask you for the 1st time and then after that it will not ask you again.

No. It is not. The forum/website needs to update the certificate.

My mobile browser (Brave) fires off lots of prompts and warnings constantly. So frustrating! :(

Btw you can observe how drastically it affects active users (and posts count), it must be on its all-year low now.

I don't see why this would need so much time to be fixed, tbh. Particularly, since the process of getting a new certificate seemingly was already started on May 23rd, given that there is at least a pre-certificate in the transparency log: https://crt.sh/?id=6784577849

All I can do is ask Dal via FB. I've posted him the link to this thread and hopefully he will respond with what's being done or has been done.
