chrome.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to us.shb-sync.com

For a few weeks now I keep getting this warning for the same thing over and over again. I want to allow it so I don't have to keep seeing it but how do I know if it is safe or not. It says, "chrome.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an expired certificate to us.shb-sync.com. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since websites must renew their certificates with a certification authority to stay current, and outdated security certificates represent a risk."

Thanks for any help in advance,

Rhonda

  • I am getting the same warning multiple times a day. I also want to allow if it is safe.

  • I have even done a full system scan and there has been a recent Chrome update. I will call Bitdefender next. It doesn't seem to be as frequent today but we shall see what happens.

  • I received the same thing. Did a quick glance through my certificates in Windows 10 Certificate Manager and could not find one that matched this according to expiration date. Not concerned since it i blocked but Bitdefender staff needs to look into it.

  • How did you block it @Bringit ? I wrote to Bitdefender and none of their suggestions worked for me.

  • I have discovered the two sites I have as pages that open automatically when I open Chrome seem to be making this us.shb-sync.com occur or so it seems after testing it. The two sites are msn.com and usatoday.com. I am sure others might make this occur, but the thing they have in common is they are both news sites. I have removed them from my list to automatically open and hope this stops the problem.

    "Chrome seem to be making this us.shb-sync.com occur or so it seems after testing it. The two sites are msn.com and usatoday.com"

    Bingo! USAToday.com is doing it for me. It is likely an ad server site trying to deliver pop up adds on USAToday.com. That ad server has an expired SSL certificate.

  • It is great we know about usatoday.com but now other ones are popping up from other ad services like crazy. Especially cooking blogs I am signed up at. Oh well, at least they are being blocked.

  • Also getting this warning when using Firefox. So probably site related as suggested. Checking scripting links from USA today...
