Invalid certificate error - "static.ak.facebook.com"

  • 8

When I try to load any CH page, I get the message, "The certificate for this website is invalid. You might be connecting to a website that is pretending to be "static.ak.facebook.com."

  1. nope,but I'll leave and ? return to be certain

    1. I'm back ,all Ok for me

      1. I'm getting same warning this morning. Did not last night.

        1. The certificate issue is new, and unrelated to the downtime. It's possible that this is due to our Facebook "like" button or to other external tools; thank you for bringing it to our attention.

          EDIT: I've moved your reply out to a new thread, since it's a separate issue. If anyone else has encountered this problem and has additional information, it would be appreciated.

            As of this afternoon, I'm no longer getting the warning. Pages load normally.

              Pages loaded normally once I selected "continue".

              In case it's related, I'll mention that for a period of time earlier today, I was unable to access facebook.com, getting server not responding messages.

          2. I get a very similar message in safari about static.ak.facebook.com every time I try to load a page.
