As of late I get the following error message when browsing websites; example:

{ we could not verify the certificate: reason = wrongHost }

I have done the following in Google: reset to default + deactivated extensions + etc.

nothing has helped.

Is this something to do with Bitdefender?

  • Hello @Caleb and welcome to the Community!

    For the above website example, I get the following message:

    In the event the page is trustworthy and should not be blocked due to certificate concerns, kindly get in touch with our Support Teams for further guidance, as recommended by mrmirakhur above.

    This is what i got:

    So, the website is blocked by Google Chrome, NOT by Bitdefender.


  • There might be another possible scenario I can think of, after reading the notification from the screenshot above.

    When it comes to untrusted or expired certificates, based on what I've seen so far, blocking can occasionally occur for regular and well known websites. It seems some of the reported websites have sub-domain URL used for their newsletter and promotional campaign or related pages, using a certificate with another name than the domain used by the main website. I'm not entirely sure if this is the case for the above website, however.

    It seems it's a very common practice these days and this may also trigger an alert, technically speaking. The developers are actively investigating this matter, in the context of the "suspicious connection blocked" throttling mechanism as well.

    Don't know, man.

    In my case, Bitdefender didn't show me any "Suspicious connection blocked" alert or any other alert of any kind when opened the website. Also, there is no notification alert in the Notification tab of the program.


  • THX - guys - your feedback is sincerely appreciated and your time spent.
