Why am I getting security certification errors? Can't Post

I get this pop up when I view the boards today.

The only thing (as far as I can tell) that it is not showing is an ad from WETA.

I get the ole dreaded red X instead of the ad.

I was just about to ask about this [In reply to] Can't Post

I've been getting the same error. I wouldn't have thought much about it, but it popped up for this site on my computer at work this afternoon, as well.

I just had this too [In reply to] Can't Post

I tried restarting the computer and then visited many other sites but it only occurs here. I get this:

"To help protect security, Internet Explorer has blocked this website with security certificate errors"

''What connects Nature to the spiritual, or requires the presence of the latter? In positive terms, as Alkis Kontos points out, when nature was still largely experienced as integral, alive and active, 'It was the spiritual dimension of the world, its enchanted, magical quality that rendered it infinite, not amenable to complete calculability; spirit could not be quanified; it permitted and invited mythologization.' And I would add, it still is and does.''
Patrick Curry-Defending Middle-Earth-Tolkien: Myth and Modernity - chapter: 'The Sea: Spirituality and Ethics.'

May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo

My pop-up added [In reply to] Can't Post

that the site has security certification, but the certification was out of date.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Here's what's going on [In reply to] Can't Post

And it's nothing you're doing wrong. The non-technical explanation is when the weta banner ad appears, your browser asks the weta website to validate that it's actually coming from weta, and the id that does that has expired. So the browser rejects it.

Technical explanation follows.

The web has a protocol called 'SSL' (which stands for secure sockets layer). This protocol allows data to be encrypted and transmitted across the internet with a higher level of security-- if you're using your credit card somewhere to pay for something online, for instance, the site handles the information through SSL.

The way SSL works is that there are companies out there (I work for one, but the most common one people have heard of is Verisign) known as Certificate Authorities. They issue digital certificates (certs) that work with the various browsers; these certs are something like a passport or driver's license-- they validate the identity of the company in question (in this case Weta): that they are who they claim to be. It keeps you from going to a site that's pretending to be your bank and get your information from you, and so on. So they're pretty handy things. But, like passports and driver's licenses, they expire periodically, and need to be renewed. It looks like Weta hasn't gotten theirs renewed yet, so it's generating errors.

I'm getting popups, too, and boy are they a pain! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not getting them at work, just at home. The computer at work kills the popup and just leaves a message at the top of the screen about what happened. At home I have to close the popup box every time.

Thanks, Inferno! [In reply to] Can't Post

I alerted Calisuri last night as he's the one who manages the ads. I'm sure he'll pass the word onto Weta.

Thanks for the technical explanation, as always. Smile

Maybe it's because I have adblock and it's blocking the miscreant ad.

I only get the red X of doom myself for their ads, and clinking on their ad goes nowhere but a non-existent webpage. Not very profitable for advertising Laugh
