EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted

Q: EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted


Facebook buttons and links are embedded in so many websites, that any user who has EMET 4.0 installed will get the alert when generally surfing the web. This alert does not mean in this particular case that there is a problem with Facebook or any hijack or divert is taking place. All this “EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted” means is that the rule checking the certificates inside EMET has expired on 30 December 2013. It does not mean in this particular case that the Facebook SSL certificate has expired or that anybody is intercepting or diverting your secure SSL connection to Facebook.

There are 3 cures to stop the EMET detected that the SSL certificate for *.facebook.com is not trusted alert message:

By far Cure 1 is the safest to do. All that option 2 does is delay the warning until the new date you set.

1.Update EMET 4.0 to 4.1 by going to Microsoft EMET 4.1 download and download and install EMET 4.1. This installs over the top of EMET 4.0 and retains any specific rules and settings that you have configured yourself.

2.Open up EMET 4.0, click on TRUST ( CONFIGURE CERTIFICATE TRUST) –> Click on the Pinning Rules Tab –> Under Rule Expiration for FacebookCA you can change the rule to expire next month or later and the message will go away. You can set it to when the YahooCA rule will expire on 3/13/2014 if you like and you won’t receive the message any longer. ( this just delays the warning for a further short period of time)

3.Open up EMET 4.0, click on TRUST ( CONFIGURE CERTIFICATE TRUST) –> Click on the Protected Websites Tab –> Uncheck the box beside Facebook. ( this option is potentially unsafe, because it will remove the checking to see if your “secure” connection to Facebook has been tampered with )

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I am trying to install CA root certificate on Windows 7, IE 9.
Encounter error: "Untrusted Certificate".  "This certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority."
I have tried to install the certificate to Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->local computer and import was successful. BUT on IE->Internet Options->Certificate->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities, I am unable to find this root CA on
the list.
On mmc->Certificates->Trusted Root Certificate Authorities->certificates, I am able to view this root CA.
I then restarted the IE and view the ssl site again but failed too, "Untrusted Certificate".
Anyone, any idea ?

A:Unable to Install Root CA Certificate - Certificate cannot be verified up to a trusted certificate authority.

May the following workarounds work for you:
Workaround 1:
Modify the Windows settings to allow the Update Root Certificate feature to update the root certificates automatically. For details, see the following Microsoft TechNet article:
Certificate Support and Resulting Internet Communication in Windows Server 2008
Workaround 2?
If the Update Root Certificate feature cannot automatically update the root certificates, you may contact the website vender to see if there is a hotfix can fix the issue.

First, I have reviewed the other posts with similar questions and noted that I can install the certificate into root certificates and most likely this problem will go away, some specifics:

1) When a client reported this error using a pop.secureserver.net on an outlook 2003 client, I just figured it was godaddy or the REALLY old Outlook client, but nonetheless, I went in to troubleshoot it and was convinced it was godaddy, but when I tried
to start my Outlook 2016 client on my Windows 10 computer on their network, I got the same error.  Two notes are important: 1) I use godaddy as well and 2) I used the same computer at a different client just yesterday without a single error message.
2) They use POP 995 w/ SSL & SMTP 465 w/ SSL to pop.secureserver.net & smtpout.secureserver.net repsectively
3) I called the company that manages their firewall and was told that everything was fine, but was sent a certificate from the firewall that might fix the problem.
4) The firewall company tells me they use a fortinet firewall

I have some questions that I'm hoping one of the experts here can answer for me:

Very annoying problem.
XP Pro with IE6 on desktop computer.
Trusted Sites contains: https://pilotweb.nas.faa.gov

When ever I go to the following site I get a Security Alert that states that the certificate was issued by a company that I have not chosen to trust...would I like to proceed, or install the certificate. Normally, I just click "YES" to proceed and I get my data. Sometimes I'll re-install the certificate as if it will do any good for next time...but it doesn't.

Here's the URL:


Any ideas of what I can do so that this site is always trusted and I no longer get the Security Alert?

My work involves several sites we use on a daily basis. One of these sites (via Chrome) has started coming back as "unsecure", and no fixes I've done are working. I've modified the settings (and then) turned off the warnings, I've added -ignore-certification-error to the shortcut properties, and I've added the site to the list of Trusted Sites. I still keep getting the damn "not secure" warning.

The PCs in question are Dell Optiplex 7040. Does anyone have any other ideas? I've looked at doing Copy To File for the site certification, but the one in question is grayed out.

Am running XP Pro SP3 on Dell Latitude D820.  All Windows XP & IE updates have been installed.
Suddenly, I am seeing (Topic) appearing when I attempt to login to some websites, even one for software downloaded from this site (Sun Trust...).
Most disturbing is that the login to one of my investment companies is now showing the "..not trusted" pop-up.  This is one of the largest investment companies in the U.S., so I doubt that there is a problem with their certificate, while I could easily believe that my local newspaper (another "not trusted") might not be up to date.
I have Norton installed and updated and have run Hitman, Emsisoft, AdwCleaner & ComboFix without incident but also without the desired result.
Any ideas?

A:Security Certificate not Trusted

Try installing this update http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42092
It updates the list of root certificates on your PC (theses tell your PC how to recognise certificates that it should trust). The update is not installed automatically with other critical or important updates, so if you've only done those, you may have missed this one.

I cannot get EMET 5.2 certificate pinning to work in Windows 10.
When I test it by pinning an invalid Root CA certificate to the website, EMET does not block website access in Windows 10 like it does in Windows 8.1
Has EMET certificate pinning been disabled in Windows 10 ? If so, has this functionality been superceded by a better technique ?

I have searched high and low, and this is the only anecdotal reference to this I can find:
"Windows 10 does not use certificate pinning, means someone can easily apply a man-in-the-middle-attack for each Microsoft cloud-access for example"

I use the Chrome Browser for my internet surfing. When I attempt to log on to the Federal Government's website "ebenefits.gov", I get a warning that states "The sites security certificate is not trusted". I tell it to proceed anyway and it goes to the Veterans Administration website where I can check the status of a disability claim I filed last year. With Firefox, you could tell the browser to accept the certificate once, and it never asked presented the error again. With Chrome, you have to do it every time you go to the website. This is a primary government site for the VA and DOD and I trust it. Any idea how I can get Chrome to accept its certificate as valid? Thanks for reading and sharing.

I am in the process to deploy EMET in my organization. My goal is to set all the settings using GPO.
As it is indicated in the User Guide 5.2, I already copied the EMET.admx and EMET.adml in the domain server and I managed to set the settings. I run gpupdate /force in the client and it works flawless.
But now, I wanted to configure the Certification Trust as well using the CertTrust.xml included in the EMET package.
how could I manage this globally in the domain?  I dont see any option in the GPO... and unfortunately, we dont use SCCM.
Many thanks in advance.

I have been having an intermittent problem with Facebook for the past month or two, and I can't figure out how to correct it.

We are experiencing this problem with a few workstations and laptops and what we are currently doing is exporting the CA certificate from a workstation that has it in its store and importing it. The problem with this is that the certificate will eventually
expire and we will have to re import a new one again. I don't believe it is a group policy issue because other computers in the same OU are not missing the certificate.

Cany anyone shed light on how to troubleshoot this or how to force (if possible) the workstation to download the CA certificate?

I've a very nasty issue with root CA certificate that's disappearing from the trusted root authorities store. I'll shortly describe the environment: 
- Two tier PKI infrastructure with a offline, standalone root CA and a domain joined Enterprise issuing CA (both W2012R2); root CA certificate is published in AD
- There's a parent and child domain. Issuing CA lives in parent domain (2012R2 domain&forest level)
- Employees are working on a 2012R2 RDS&Citrix XenApp 76 server in the child domain
- In the parent domain several servers are using a SSL certificate signed by the company owned issuing CA; it's a SAN certificate
- The root CA's certificate is in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store of all member servers in parent & child domain (so, that's also valid for the 2012R2 RDS servers)
The issue is that the certificate of the root CA that's in the trusted CA store of all RDS servers is being deleted on a regular base (at least once a day on each RDS-server). I enabled CAPI2 logging, but I couldn't find anything that makes sense. However
I'm able to reproduce this issue in very simple way: if I start IE11 on a RDS-server and browse to the IP-adres or NETBIOS-name of a webserver that host a site that's using a certificate from our PKI (so, it's clear that the URL isn't matching the names entered
in the SAN certificate) and I click on 'Continue to this website (not recommended)', the root CA's certificate is being removed from trusted... Read more

I am trying to resolve an issue where multiple client computers in the organisation are using an internally deployed Root CA certificate (before my time and no longer required) to sign the end entity certificate for external websites, google.co.uk
for example. All SSL sites appeared to be affected by this.

However this is not the case as sub domains of sites with issues show the correct cert chain, the below is for mail.google.com

Removing or untrusting this root ca cert breaks access to these sites.

I have reset root certs in various ways, removed machines from the domain, applied no GPOs, manually updated CRL and pulled down updated certs with rootsupd.exe.
It always attempts to use this rouge CA cert to sign the websites cert.

Since deploying EMET 5.2 via group policy and taking standard application default values exept for EAF on IE 11 (So IE opens in Windows 10), I have an issue with Photoshop opening on a users Windows 7 Professional workstation.  The event log

What would be the first thing you would change in EMET under the group policy to take off of Photoshop.exe?  Would it be EAF, because that fixed IE 11.  Would it be something else?  There's multiple things it could be, but whats the most common
protection that may solve this so I don't spend hours updating group policy, gp refreshes and testing?

We are running EMET 5.5 on Windows 10 Enterprise LTSB 64-bit. Whenever we open IE or open a new tab in IE, we see the warning referenced in the title and the event listed below is logged. We have applied a slew of recommended security settings from the DISA
STIGs. I see several people complain about this, but they have worked around the issue by either adding a site to trusted sites or disabling ASR completely. Unfortunately, when I try to disable ASR, I still get the warning and I am assuming that is because
of the policy settings we have enforced. Either way, disabling a security feature is never the right answer, so I'd really like to figure out what is causing this. The default homepage is set to about:blank. Even if we change the homepage to something in Trusted
Sites, the warning still appears. Like previously mentioned, it also appears when opening a new tab, which isn't opening any page, so it seems the settings for ASR for iexplore.exe are not behaving correctly. Can anyone offer any guidance? Thanks!

In the past we are able to just download rvkroots.exe and push it out to all our Win7 computers.

I have some Windows 7 systems which have not run Windows Updates for many years, and cannot due to regulatory reasons.   We rely upon Windows to automatically update the Trusted Root Certificate store whenever we browse to a web site/web service
that uses a certificate the system doesn't recognize. 
Sometime recently, the Trusted Root Certificate Store no longer updates automatically.  The Windows Event Log shows an error stating that the certificates cannot be downloaded from:
http : // ctldl.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab
If we browse to this location manually, the cab file contains an invalid Microsoft certificate. 

This was also an issue in Sept 2018.  At that time, the certificate had expired, and Microsoft eventually updated the certificate to resolve the issue.   This time, the certificate does not appear to have expired.  Why is the certificate
invalid this time, and can Microsoft fix it again?

In Internet Explorer, when I get a certificate error, if I continue to the web site, I can then view the certificate to see what was wrong.  However, obviously it would be preferable* to see the certificate
before I make the decision to go to the site.  Is this possible?  I'm sure I could use another browser that does this, or maybe use the F12 developer tools, or write a program.   But I'm looking
for a normal-user way to do it.  I think it used to be possible in Internet Explorer, but this might have been 6.x or even earlier.  Or even
way earlier.  Yep.  I'm that old.  I believe this feature is not in Edge either...unless I'm just missing it.  But I'm using ie11 right now.
*understatement level is set to "high".

Really confusing one here. Since this weekend (16/17 July) we have started getting Certificate errors on some sites and applications. This seems to be due to the structure of the URL compared to the "advertised" name IIS is presenting. I'll try
to explain.
I have a site, Website. This is in my domain, domain.com. Therefore the FQDN is website.domain.com. IIS is running and I can access this site through FQDN,NetBIOS or IP address. Good news.
I create a certificate for the server using the FQDN as the subject, I add the Netbios and IP addresses in the Subject Alternate Names and Bind this to port 443 on the server.
I browse to https://website and all is good. I browse to https://website.domain.com I get a certificate error. Checking the certificate, everything is fine, no errors, chain is trusted. open Chrome and do the same, I get that the certificate website.domain.com
is being presented by Website and may not be the site I want.
Using either URL has never been a problem until this weekend, but it seems that IE/Windows/IIS is not liking any URL that is not EXACTLY what IIS is presenting. so my questions are:-
Is anyone else finding this?
Can we issue a certificate that covers all possible DNS resolutions for a site?
How do I control WHAT IIS advertises itself as?
SO far this has affected two major systems on our network and I can see that more will arise, so any help would be appreciated.
