Lots of untrusted certificates the past week


Recommended Posts

I just started getting notifications from ESET Internet Security about a week ago regarding untrusted certifcates in Google Chrome.   Its happening on many of the pages I frequent, Slickdeals and Facebook to name a few.  Has something changed in a latest update?

Please provide a screen shot of 1-2 such warnings. Also try the following:
- Reboot the machine
- Without launching any applications, disable SSL/TLS filtering in the advanced EIS setup and save the changes
- Re-enable SSL/TLS filtering
- Try to reproduce the scenario.

do you happen to do any host file or DNS-level ad/tracker-blocking?

IS your date and time accurate? if so then uncheck SSL scanning in advanced options for ESET and then reboot machine. Go back into ESET advanced options and re-enable SSL scaning.

Date and time are accurate, disabled and re-enabled SSL, restarted computer.  I have this same issue.

I figured it was related to this article, but can't confirm.

Get it a lot just visiting CNN and watching news videos from there.

And yes, happened a lot in the the last week.

For Chrome users, it is most likely related to Symantec certificates but not for the above revoked certs. but instead for this reason:

Google to kill Symantec certs in Chrome 66, due in early 2018

@demonlight can you reproduce it lik Marcos asked on post 2? It would be very helpfull to see the warnings...

Sorry for not posting back, I haven't had many popups within the past week.   I assumed it was related to the various links posted earlier regarding rejected certificates in Chrome.   If I receive anymore popup warnings regarding certificates, Ill post them.
