Chromium certificate issue resolved

17 November 2016 20:08:44 +0000

The issue with the Google Chromium web browser reporting valid certificates as “unsafe” has been resolved today with an update to Chromium.


Update, 2016-11-20: We’ve posted a commentary about this on our blog.

Issues with *.niner.net certificate

16 November 2016 10:34:52 +0000

We are aware that s small subset of users of the Chromium web browser may receive the following error when trying to access websites and control panels via HTTPS that use the *.niner.net certificate:

Your connection is not private

Attackers might be trying to steal your information from cp31.niner.net (for example, passwords, messages or credit cards). NET::ERR_CERTIFICATE_TRANSPARENCY_REQUIRED

(cp31.niner.net will be replaced by whatever domain you are trying to access.)

If you click the “ADVANCED” link you will see the following additional information:

The server presented a certificate that was not publicly disclosed using the Certificate Transparency policy. This is a requirement for some certificates, to ensure that they are trustworthy and protect against attackers.

This is a bug in Google Chromium, not a problem with our certificate.

Until Google fixes this bug we recommend using a better web browser (e.g., Firefox), or clicking the “Proceed to cp31.niner.net (unsafe)” link that is revealed when you click “ADVANCED” as described above. Clicking the “unsafe” link is indeed safe in this case. Even very big and very busy websites — such as Yahoo and Flickr for example — are currently affected by this bug.

SSL certificate issue resolved

21 April 2011 06:06:25 +0000

We have tracked down the problem with the new SSL certificate on server NC018 and fixed it. We have also tested on Windows, Mac, Linux and iOS (iPhone) computers using Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome and Konqueror, and all work as expected. We have also used a testing tool made available by the issuer of the SSL certificate, and the SSL certificate installation passed all tests.

If you have experienced problems loading SSL pages on a niner.net sub-domain — e.g., the control panel (cp.niner.net), the webmail (webmail.niner.net), etc. — please close and restart your web browser to clear this issue on your computer. If you continue to experience the problem, please try rebooting your computer. If you still experience the issue, please contact NinerNet support, and tell us what operating system you are using (e.g., Windows XP/Vista/7, Mac, Linux, etc.), what browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.) and the version number of your browser. Please also include the exact text of any error messages you are seeing.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused you.

Problem with new SSL certificate on server NC018

21 April 2011 01:00:06 +0000

Early yesterday we installed a new wildcard SSL certificate on server NC018. In the testing we did everything worked fine. However, we’ve had reports today that Mac users are getting an SSL warning from both Firefox and Safari, and some Firefox users on Windows are also getting the same warning.

This affects sub-domains of the niner.net domain — e.g., the control panel (cp.niner.net), the webmail (webmail.niner.net) and a few other sub-domains.

We are looking into this and will post an update here when the problem is fixed. In the meantime, it is safe to ignore the dire warning by following the instructions you will see in your browser.
