Expired security certificate


When I try to connect to boards.straightdope.com/sbmd I get the following error from Bitdefender (my antivirus program) displayed in my browser:

Quote:
Suspicious page blocked for your protection
https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/
Your connection to this web page is not safe due to an expired security certificate.
Web pages must renew their certificates to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk for your data.
This similar error popped up three times in Bitdefender, probably because I had some pages that I had left open for some time:

Quote:
chrome.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to boards.straightdope.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since web pages must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk.
This happened just a few minutes ago. Obviously, I was able to get past the error to post this message.
