This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello to everybody,

I have noticed recently that when I am signing in to Connect web-site I am getting security warning from my IE (see picture). Is it normal behavior? Then I get warning  that the security certificate of the site is not valid.

Question is to the site administrators primarily.

Additional info: Win 7 Ent US-En, IE 8.0

I also get the same  security warning whenever I log in the connect website.

What I did is that I have to lower and adjust the the security settings.

Hi Volo,

 

Seems like it is only IE. I switched to Firefox, and the problem went away.

 

Laters!

It's IE specific obviously. Switching to alternative browser is a workaround. Doesn't repro on Opera.

But still it is an issue. I was reading recommendations for SMBs selling their goods via internet and one of points recommended was double check the validity of security certificate for the site. Hope we do not have this problem here :)

(too slooooow) but tried & could not replicate the issue.

Obviously there are a few who are encountering this, so is it version specific? (Tried IE8 64-bit on Win7)

This was caused by one particular part of the page loading with http while the rest of the page was loading with https. We (the developers, actual) have worked on a solution for this. You should see it fixed shortly.

Leslie, I think it's gone right now. Thanks.

It is good because at work, where I primarily log in to Connect we have IE asa corp standard and no other browsers allowed.

I saw this problem on IE on the weekend, during the site maintenance. It was strange because the site did not load in FF but in IE I could run it somehow - although with this error :-)
