CA issued Certificate Unsupported by ATA

Q: CA issued Certificate Unsupported by ATA

I used the Computer Template for the certificate.
The issued certificate is a SHA384 instead of a SHA256 which is the only difference from the certificate that doees work.
Does ATA Support SHA384?

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.)

Occasionally when I'm using imgur.com or browsing reddit and finding links to imgur, Google Chrome alerts me that the certificate issued is from a.sni.fastly.net, and not imgur.com. The 'https://' in the url is also slashed out. Is my connection being tampered with like it says might be happening or is it something on imgur's end?

A:Certificate issued by a.sni.fastly.net instead of imgur?

It may be an image or some kind of link that is not providing the correct information. This would be on imgur side. The HTTPS being crossed out is due to that certificate error.

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.

Any assistance would be much appreciated.

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:

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?

Can someone walk me through the steps of having Advanced Threat Analytics (ATA) request a new certificate from Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS)?  I'm not familiar with either product so I will need detailed steps please.  At a high-level
i'm guessing
1. ATA issues a certificate request
2. I send the request to ADCS
3. ADCS issues a cert for that request
4. Install new cert in ATA
I'll need detailed command line statements.  My ATA Center server is named ATASERVER.DOMAIN.ORG, and I but the URL is configured as ATACENTER.DOMAIN.ORG in ATA.  Can the cert handle both the servername and the URL?

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.

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.

We have a problem where we encrypted files using EFS, however we can't access or decrypt these files now.

We have the certificate in the certmgr.msc but we do see that the key is missing.

I have reproduced this on another computer and was able to run certutil -repairstore -user MY "Serial Number" which worked in repairing the store and files was decryptable again.

However on the machine that encrypted the files that we need to access this is not the case as there is a popup asking for your Smart Card.

We are not using Smart Cards at all, and have had a look at the following article regarding this issue, but the hotfix didn't work: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2955631

I have software that can remove the encryption but will require the .pfx file, which can't be exported as the certstore doesn't show that it still has this.

It is a self signed certificate generated by Windows, so I can't request a new one using the CA.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Having some fun with a windows 7 setup of DirectAccess, have it configured to use ECC certificates on the client for the IPSec authentication, which was working brilliantly, we even have it loaded up behind a Citrix Netscaler to do SSL offloading of the
HTTPS tunnel encryption. But when trying to get Client Preauthentication working, we hit a snag, it seems that the NetScalers dont support ECC certificates, which is a pain, but something we thought we could work around by using an RSA certificate on the client
to performed the pre-authentication (as shown here https://directaccess.richardhicks.com/2016/05/10/directaccess-ip-https-preauthentication-using-citrix-netscaler/).
So we have three CA's, CA1/2 issue RSA certs and CA3 is setup to do the ECC ones, so nice separation of the chains.
So we have our Cert chain for RSA loaded into the load balancer and a new cert issued to the client from CA1... But, every time the client connects to the server (LB) we see the handshake taking place, the server sends a list of its DNs (CA1/2) (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kaushal/2015/05/27/client-certificate-authentication/)
to the client, but then the client looks in its store, picks out the ECC certificate (issued from CA3) and fails to authenticate saying no suitable certificate can be found, its like its not even looking at the RSA one at all.
So, thinking something was wrong with the way the LB was asking for client authentication, I tried deleting the ECC cert a... Read more

I installed KB3097877 on the 10th.

I saw posts that it broke TeamViewer.

Indeed, my TeamViewer would not connect to other computers.

I uninstalled KB3097877 on the 10th.

TeamViewer was still broken for me.

I installed KB3097877 on the 11th so that I could keep testing Outlook.

Now I am offered KB3097877 again.
[BTW, TeamViewer started working again on its own.]

The catalog (and Windows Update) shows it was published on 12 Nov.


I'm going to install it :-)

A:KB3097877 re-issued?

TeamViewer still works. Outlook 2010 still works... BUT: KB3097877 (version 1?) did not break Outlook on this laptop - even when viewing HTML format e-mails with images and tables. So, installing this version of KB3097877 over top of the old version of KB3097877 was not much of a test.

KB3097877 (version 1?) did break Outlook 2010 on my desktop - even if I did not open any e-mails. I can not test KB3097877 (version 2?) on my desktop again. It is busy doing stuff.

Certificate authorities provide websites with a certificate for a limited time before renewal which proves site is safe to visit, but what if site changes its modules after getting certificate ? There is a periodic check done by CA's to stop this but how regular is that ? And even after checking if the website is found harmful the certificate is revoked but the browser may not be capable of using both method together
Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP)
looking up the certificate in a Certificate Revocation List (CRL).
So is trusting CA's a good option ?

A:Can certificates issued by CA's be trusted ?

I think certificates of trust are long-obsolete. The whole system is in need of a revamp, but it won't be done because it would cause mass disruption - and everyone will complain that it will cost too much money.

Can they be trusted ? - not absolutely.

I was informed by Windows Update this morning that an "important" update was available -- specifically
"2018-01 Security Monthly Quality Rollup for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB4056894)"

Installation date: ?1/?8/?18 08:06 AM

Installation status: Failed

Error details: Code 800706BE

Help and Support:

As you see, it's listed as having "Failed". However, if I now do a "Check for updates", it says Windows is up to date. The M$ page for KB4056894 says, "Due to an issue with some versions of Anti-Virus software, this fix is only being made applicable to the machines where the Anti virus ISV have updated the ALLOW REGKEY." That REGKEY is

Value Name="cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc"



I checked, and I DO have that REGKEY and every value is exactly as described.

So, can I assume that while the update is being offered to ALL Win 7 users, it will only install IF you do not have the REGKEY described, and when the install fails, it triggers something in Windows Update telling it that this computer does not need it, so subsequent update checks indicate you're up to date?

Microsoft released a Security Advisory today which states that Comodo accidentally issued nine certificates to an unknown party or parties for domains belonging to Google, Yahoo, Mozilla, Microsoft and Skype.The domains in question are:login.live.commail.google.comwww.google.comlogin.yahoo.com (3 certificates)login.skype.comaddons.mozilla.orgAdditionally, a certificate was issued for "Global Trustee" but the significance of this is not known.Certificates like the ones Comodo issued are used in many areas of modern computing to verify the identity of the person or company it was issued to. Each certificate consists of two parts: a public certificate and a private key. Public certificates list vital information about the owner: their name, organization, public encryption key, URLs for which the certificate is valid, etc. This certificate is then digitally signed by the issuer with their private key which ensures that the certificate cannot be altered and that it came from a trusted certificate issuing authority. The private key half of the certificate is kept a closely guarded secret by the owner of the certificate.In this way it is possible to both verify the source of a file or a website but also to securely encrypt data in such a way that only the owner of the certificate can decrypt it. This forms the basis of SSL/TLS which is used to secure online data. It is used by online merchants to safely collect customer payment information and by websites such as Facebook,... Read more

Hi, I Would like to inquire about Microsoft update policies. I know there are security updates, as well as general updates to programs and the operating system. The security updates I have no problem with. I wonder about some of the other updates though.
Is it possible that some of these updates are issued to make your older versions of, for instance, Office (Office 2010) seem to loose luster so that you will replace them with something newer, or should such questions be relegated to realm of conspiracy theories, bigfoot, and the aboginable snowperson?
It is easy to see the value to a company if they can make your old stuff less usable so that they can sell you something new. Question is, would they be so unscrupulous as to do that?
If they were to do such a thing, would simply not downloading the updates to a system that is working just fine be an acceptable way to approach the problem, so long as you installed the security updates?
I do of course recognize that I could just be picking up glitches with time. Thanks for your attention to this concern.

I downloaded/applied ALL updates at the same time.
I ran the Cleanup utility and it deleted ~200 MB of unneeded previous updates after these updates.
No problems so far...

Specific scenarios existed when unprivileged user might read file with a private key created by product for managing SSL connection. This could be used by attacker/malware with access to a host in order to obtain this file to perform targeted attacks on SSL connections initiated by browser application on the host.

If user navigated to a web site with invalid SSL certificate and decided to trust it by selecting Continue on the product's warning in order to access the site, product added the certificate to trusted root incorrectly. That might be used by attacker to skip invalid certificate warning if user access sites that were listed in Subject Alternative Names of the original invalid SSL certificate.

SSL certificate caching error existed that might be used by attacker with a control of network in order to perform targeted attack on a host to intercept SSL connections initiated by browser application specifically by using IP address instead of a domain name.

In trying to research this issue online, I almost feel like I'm imagining things... I'm a pretty tech savvy guy but just can't figure out why I'm having this new issue..

My daughters each received a school issued chrome book (2 chromebooks in total)... They are supposed to complete all school work on them.

Pretty cool... Free chrome books... The issue arises at home. When they use the home WiFi (supported by xfinity issued WiFi rental router)... All other users are, in effect booted from their pre-existing connections... It feels like the new Chromebooks are taking a priority over WiFi connection.

Now... last year, my daughters each used a laptop (not issued by school) for their work... Last year no one lost their existing WiFi connection... The rest of the family is using windows (laptop) or android (phone) products.

In comparison from year to year there is an equal count of devices that would consume a WiFi signal.. Again.. The only difference is that two laptops were flipped to chrome books

When the girls finish their homework, everyone else can get back online...
My question

It feels like the chrome books are set up in a way such that they will have priority over consuming signal... Perhaps even trading taking a bigger chunk...

If this is the case, if I'm not crazy, is there a network setting somewhere where I could affect said priority and said consumption rate... At this point ... These free chromebooks, originally meant to increase p... Read more

In conversation with several online cloud data backup services for both consumers and commercial operations, I kept coming across the same problem that their software was not open source, so how to trust? As in most cases it’s best to never trust the provider, but the software encryption! Services then which allow the generated keys to be in the possession of the user, and only the user, seem like the best way forwards.
But then the second issue: upstream speed. My theory then was that if open crypto-algorithms likes AES were relied upon by the company, then surely a Seed Drive could be encrypted before hand with the same keys and mailed in safely?
The solution time and time again rubbished the idea of a Seed Drive (storage mediums pre-populated with data and sent through traditional post to the storage provider for the sakes of speed) due to technical issues:
• Extra manual work requirements
• The Seed Drive(s) require software changes
• New security protocols needed for how staff interact with Seed Drives
• Increased complexity to add Seed Drive data into existing storage infrastructure
As if my suspicions were not raised enough already, why then does every avenue to true anonymity keep being blocked off? 
(don’t get me started on crypto-payments)
My question is what are the steps needed to provide such a service?

A:Encrypting seed drives for offsite storage with same privately issued keys

The best I could find was open source encryption software called "borg" (http://tinyurl.com/borgbackup) and online storage solution rsync.net, which seems to be what I want, and for a better price than SpiderOak.

I have an Asus P4B533 M/B (Socket 478, 533Mhz FSB), and I'm wondering if I can use an Intel Pentium 4 2.60C(S478) with it, which has 800Mhz FSB, and my M/B supports 533Mhz.
I should be able to overclock the FSB, and use 400Mhz RAM, but the CPU isn't listed in the CPU support list on asus.com. Is it possible to use that CPU on my M/B?
