Hey guys what is this? Is there something wrong in the forum. Was it just me or any other else has experienced this? I got this error twice just today when I tried posting a while a go and just now when I am making this thread.  Undecided

Also I have encountered this one a while ago before but no one answered.

Is this safe or not? Huh



EDIT: got the same error again after I posted this. Sad

It looks like you don't have the proper certificate for bitcointalk. The certificate info you have is different from the info I have, which also matches what Theymos posted here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=568146.msg11445861#msg11445861 This means someone is sending you the wrong certificate when you try to browse Bitcointalk.

That's OpenDNS trying to inject its ads (which they said they stopped doing, but they didn't). It's not safe and you shouldn't use it. Use Google Public DNS instead. And fix your damn font.

Unless the HTTPs key matches this (and you can verify the signature of theymos) then you are being subject to some kind of MITM attack.

I would say the most likely scenario is that you are/were using some kind of public WIFI and the owner was either attempting something malicious or was directing you to some kind of site for you to agree to tOs of using their WIFI and/or to pay for using their WIFI

Just change your DNS settings and you should be fine. I had to switch from openDNS a while back as well. You might want to look at OpenNIC[1] or just use the your ISPs DNS. Im pretty happy with OpenNIC.
