Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead

Firefox detected an issue and did not continue to cupoflinux.com. The website is either misconfigured or your computer clock is set to the wrong time.

It’s likely the website’s certificate is expired, which prevents Firefox from connecting securely. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.
problem i don't understand ?
What can you do about it?

Your computer clock is set to 9/13/2019. Make sure your computer is set to the correct date, time, and time zone in your system settings, and then refresh cupoflinux.com.

If your clock is already set to the right time, the website is likely misconfigured, and there is nothing you can do to resolve the issue. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.
I don't understand , just open de site and get this ?

I had that issue logging on today as well. I just told firefox to ignore it and "accept the risk"

Now that it is loading the page, I notice that it's still trying to show the security issue page in the page header, although the rest of the page loads fine and when I open separate threads they work and the header looks normal. But no amount of refreshing seems to fix the header on the main forums list page...

not sure what would cause this

Sounds like someone needs to renew their SSL Cert. I got the error too, it's typically safe to ignore the security risk since we know what COL is, who it's community members are, and who Spatry is.

Replicated on Opera 63.0.3368.88. Just getting a banner

This site can't be reached. The webpage at https://cupoflinux.com/Header.html might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

Seems fine if I tell it to trust the cert.

Yep, same here. It looks like the certification expired about 3 days ago, according to Safari. I was able to get on fine once I double-checked the URL to make sure there was nothing fishy, and then add the site to my trusted list.

Literally how dare you let this happen. The world has ended because I had to make an exception for your website in my browser. I'm already two therapy sessions into my recovery process. I'll be sending you the bill.  ;)

crazy week?

for me it started out with a guy calling the hardware store where I work to ask if we carry liquid mercury... the next day, someone came in the store in their underwear, then a guy's parking brake let loose and his truck rolled down the lot and jumped the curb, trashing his transmission... and finally, on saturday, five minutes before closing, a guy comes in wanting plywood cut lengthwise (4 foot by 8 foot sheets) and I dropped a full sheet of 1/2 inch plywood on my toe...

don't be whinin' bout no missin' certs! LOL
