Do you still have LogMeIn installed? I remember you posting and asking about LogMeIn, not too long ago. When checking the thread, I see where you also referenced Vista.
On the outside chance, this was/is a valid message, sometimes checking (and changing, if necessary) the date and time will correct it. Mozilla offers other solutions, if that's not the cause. (You can view the certificate, by first going to Tools>Options>Advanced>Encryption Tab)
FWIW.. if you "search" the LogMeIn Community Forum, you'll find quite a few "cert issues". The same holds true with LogMeIn, at the Mozilla Firefox forum, at mozillaZine.
Lastly, if you don't have LogMeIn installed anymore, OR never did on this machine........... DISREGARD THE ABOVE!
I can't tell you why the error appeared, in the manner it did. Hopefully, someone more knowledgeable in this area, will add their 2
I googled the term "logmein" and got a popup with the following message.
Secure Connection Failed
logmein.org:443 uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is only valid for secure.logmein.com
(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)
This could be a problem with the server's configuration or it could be someone trying to imporsonate the server.
This popup appeared right after I hit the "google search" button,
I didn't even click on any of the links returned from the search so wasn't trying to "connect". Why would this come up?
Is it likely that I caught a malware just from doing this, or maybe there is one on my system?
I am using Firefox 3.6.3, Vista SP2. Scanned with Microsoft security essential, Malware Bytes anti malware, and Superantispyware, and the results are clean.
I went to another PC running XP and googled the same term "logmein" with the same version of Firefox but didn't get such a popup.
Any suggestion would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot.
