Whenever I open the thread "It's easy for Jews to talk about life", a message pops up titled "Website Certified by Unknown Authority" & "Unable to verify the identity of forum.grossdeutschesland-vaterland.net as a trusted site." I guess I could disable the "Website Certified....." feature (I'm using Firefox) but I'm wondering why it only pops up on one thread. Is there a security breach?

I also had a similar message and I use Opera!

Ditto, using Firefox. Perhaps it is because some member has a link to an image hosted on that website?

It happens because the initial post contains smilies from grossdeutschesland-vaterland.net.

I got the same thing using Windows XP and Exploryer. Maybe it is a Jewish group monitoring this tread???

A group of shape-shifting, Jewish lizards, I expect...

Initial post contains this:


https://forum.grossdeutsches-vaterland.net/images/smilies/tongue.gifThe https connection is the issue, the s means it is on a secure http connection, which means your browser will always prompt you like that unless you set it up not to. Your browser 'doesn't recognize the certificate authority' because it is most likely a self-signed certificate.

Don't worry, there aren't any Jewish groups monitoring the site through that means, nor is it a security issue.
Yes it's most likely a self-signed certificate. I fixed it by replacing link
to the smiley with one of our smilies. As a general thought, people shouldn't copy and paste articles/smilies directly from other forums, but paste them into notepad first and replace the smilies with ours.
