-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----Hash: SHA1 Today a browser window popped up by itself taking me to awww.windowsonecare.com web site. The site purports to be run byMicrosoft and wants to install antivirus/antispyware updates. It alsowants wants me to sign in. If I click on the sign in button, I getwarned that there's a problem with the site's certificate. This allsounds very suspicious. Is it legitimate? I'm leery about providing anycredentials to a site that pops up on it's own and then my browser tellsme the site's certificate was issued by an untrusted authority.

That I can't answer. You need to ask MS or Mozilla.

If you go to Microsoft's home page and search for Onecare you are given the site you refer to. I believe it is their new all singing all dancing Anti Virus, Firewall and anti-spy package in competition with Norton et al.

14/04/2018 18:33 - -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----Hash: SHA1 So why does MS use a certificate with an untrusted issuer/signer? CN = Microsoft Secure Server AuthorityDC = redmondDC = corpDC = microsoftDC = com Is it because I use FireFox and need to mark this is a trusted signer? -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----Version: GnuPG v1.4.0 (MingW32) iEYEARECAAYFAkR3I6wACgkQzIf+rZpn0oRR9QCgg/qWy7z2m4tGtHGY1GSelBwt/xUAn2gwbOO7AyVIlaZwS+2EsNYlj/2z=tTP4-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
