Rubygems.org SSL problem

I just visited rubygems.org and Chromium is reporting that its SSL
certificate is not trusted. Does this issue occur for anyone else?
Thanks.

I use google chrome Version 19.0.1083.0 canary on Mac OS X Lion…

Everything is working normally.

Regards,
JF

Works fine for me, too. Suraj, what was the exact URL that you visited
when this
occurred?

Thanks for verifying. The problem must be local to my system then.

Using Chromium 17.0.963.79, I typed “rubygems.org” into the address
bar and it redirected me to “https://rubygems.org/” upon which the
SSL Error warning is shown.

No problem! Yes, I guess so, see below.

That is strange. Simply typing “rubygems.org” should access
http://rubygems.org” -
and not redirect you to https automatically… If you type in
https://rubygems.org
manually, do you get the same warning?

Tested with Chrome 18.0.1025.140 and Chromium 19.0.1085.0 on W7 Pro 64,
no problems.

What specific error do you get? Screenshot or pastie?

“… or an attacker may be trying to intercept …”

Is this the only site for which you have https problems?

Is it possible that your ISP/company/goverment watches your internet
traffic? Wouldn’t be the first time, but I don’t want to jump to
conclusions …

Yes, so far.

True. I just tried visiting the website from my computer at work and it
works correctly, so there’s definitely something wrong with my computer
or
network at home.

Cheers.

Thanks.

rubygems.org switched to a new certificate provider which is provided by
COMODO CA. While their CA was untrusted due to a recent exploit, our
certificate was issued after trust should have been restored for your
browser (chromium).

It seems this is a bug in the chromium browser as we’ve had other
reports of the same issue, but only with chromium and not with any other
browser. I suggest you file a bug with chromium.
