I've been getting the Security Alert popups frequently over the last few months. When I examine the certificates in question they appear to be coming from:
- In the case of my home connection, an expired self-signed certificate on the DSL modem provided by AT&T. The AT&T support desk was clueless as to how to fix this.
- In the case of my office, a self-signed certificate that is not expired coming from the firewall appliance. I've tried adding the certificate to various certificate stores to no avail.
Why are these certificates interfering with my access and how to I stop this? Responding Yes, No, or installing the certificate in any of the various certificate stores achieve nothing.
If this is a security feature, it is worthless if it keeps interfering with my work with these useless false alarms.
