I think someone is tampering with my connection
Advertisement
Lately, when I go to certain sites, I have been getting a screen that tells me that the site is not trusted and is not giving a valid security certificate. The problem is that it has popped up on sites that I know to be valid such as Google and other sites that I have used for years with no problem.

At the bottom of the screen, it says that if I know the site can be trusted, that it could mean someone is tampering with my internet connection. Why anyone would want to taper with my internet connection is beyond me, but I am starting to get concerned.

That's a weird error for sure. It should only happen on urls with https:// before it. And then only when there is an error with the certificate.

Sometimes it happens that a certificate is not yet updated, but this cases are very rare.

Not sure what could cause this.

I had that not valid thing for awhile at a site.. so I googled what it said.. and one of the things it suggested was to make sure the date/time on my computer was correct.. I did that, because it was wrong, and I never got that message again..

Just Plain Nuts.

It means you might have some software, like a virus or trojan, that's spoofing your packets.
