Skip

In order for me to login I had to ignore and override a message that said this website was unsafe.  It said something about the certificate being with Invisionzone.

This happened yesterday as well.  Just an FYI.

Thanks for the heads up, I have a Tech look into it, if you could provide a bit more info so they can check what it could be.

What browser, malware/virus protection are you using, they will need this info so they can check for compatibility issues, etc., also I know you visit Steve's forum and it's the same forum system, are you seeing the same there?

I ask because on my two different systems that I use are showing the forum as being secure.

It has nothing to do with virus or hacks. https is a method of secure communication between your browser and the website.

Your forum website is https but the server security certificate to verify the s in https has expired.

The website is not any more dangerous without https but once the board software providers decided to enable an https certificate it became their obligation to renew that certificate every year. They have not done so which is why you are getting the message. Contact invision and tell them to update their certificate, there is nothing you can do beyond that. Only the server owner can update the certificate.

Thanks Barry!

So this should be the case on Steve'/s forum as well as Rob's and a few others, anyone having the same issues on those forums?

Thanks for letting me know!

If ya'll could also provide what browser, malware/virus protection, etc. you're using it would help the Tech track down any glitches etc. that could be causing this issue!

Also I mentioned above that my browser shows the forum as "Safe/Secure", it even has the little padlock symbol beside the web address.

Try clicking on this link and see if it shows the forum as safe using the link, if so it maybe an out of date web address that is being use. :idunno: :89:

This is the link I use from "my favorites" that shows the forum as being safe, you'll also notice that the link is a https link.

This is often misunderstood. The lock symbol does not indicate the website is safe. It indicates the users connection to the website is encrypted. The https only indicates there is an encrypted connection - the lock has nothing to do with the safety of a websites content.

Steve is on a different software license plan with invision. His servers and domains are different than the one's nuggetshooter uses, notice his forum address doesn't have the "ipbhost" extension. Comparing apples to oranges.

The warning is being presented by the users browser. These "Unsafe Connection" errors are always thrown by browsers. No antivirus etc. software checks the connection security - that would be insecure. Looking a little closer at the code the forum is using I see that the forum software is having problems running ProtectionsHandler.jsm and some of the resources expected in web.js do not exist. If even one of the remote connections like google tracking or ads are not encrypted properly the error will appear even though the nuggetshooter https certificate is current and valid. Just a tech note as to why this error might display even though the connection appears to be secure.

 

Unless you have added your own ads or remote content of your own to the forum this is a problem that will need to addressed by your provider.

I have had the same message displayed for a few days but today it didn't appear when I logged in.  Might be taken care of by now.

I had the message when I logged on just now.

I apologize for this taking so long, but I got tied up with the holidays, work inbetween and not remembering my login info for Tech support.

But a help request has been done and now just waiting on Invision Tech Support to find the issue, I'm  sure the holidays are also affecting things on their end.

The Tech from Invision said he didn't find any issues that could cause this and has asked that anyone having these issues to clear their browser cache.

"Hello,

Please have the users clear their browser cache, as this is showing correctly at present

Kind Regards,
Marc Stridgen"

@mn90403 @nugget108 @Morlock @Old Tom @FlakMagnet @clay

Please post in this topic if you're still having issue after clearing your browser cache!
