Posted:Hey tonight while I've been on HoP a *do you want to trust this 'certificate' notice* has popped up a number of times frelating to a certificate from something from the Mixing Bowl. Firefox suggests it might 'from a site pretending to be.. etc.

Naturally I haven't accepted it as I have no idea what it is. There is a pointer to a website www.mixingbowl.org but I am not signing up to enter it cos, again, I don't know what it is or what 'logging on insecurely' to it implies.

Any clues, Oh Nerdy and More Experienced Ones? I took a screen shot if anyone is interested/needs to know more

OK now the plot thickens.. I noticed that just typing the name of the site in created a link here so I followed it and got to a page (vergant?) with a whole lot of names .. website names??? One of which was the Mixing Bowl. Vergant looks all green and cuddly... anyone know why it would be suddenly sending me certificates in the middle of HoP sessions though?

Posted:well I can't say I know much about hacking, but it would be a good way to get people to accept a certificate and then install dodgy activex / stuffs / malspyadware without asking the user... but for that to be the case HOP BB would have to be hack-ed. If the site goes to a big list of sites, could be some kind of phishing network...

Yeah I only get the certificate when on hop. But I do have like 20 more tabs open, for the joys of multi-surfing.

Posted:I was getting something asking me to log in. Never really thought about what it might be. Just cancelled. I remember the word Darmstadt.

Only happened while on HoP, but again, I have lots of tabs open so I dunno that it was this site.

Not had any certificate requests.

Posted:Normally in the past it have been caused by someone embedding a picture, usually their avatar, which is sourced from another server. The other server is set up to request a certificate if the image is display on another server.

Just need to find which image is causing the problem and then remove the link.

Certificate Issueer:

Quote:
"thmixingbowl.org" is site that uses a security certificate to
encrypt data during transmission, bu its certificate will not be
valid until 11/19/08 21:29.

you should check to make sure that your computers's time
(correctly set to Wed Oct 22 01:55:08 2008) is correct.

Would you like to continue anyway?

Posted:None of the links so far have generated the problem for me. I'm running in Google chrome on WinXP.

Firefox 3 loads with no message, although Internet Explorer has given me a message in the info bar saying
"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors. Click here for options..."

As I'm at work at the moment I'm not going to play with it, but I'll explore a bit more once I have access to my virtual machines at home this evening.
