Off topic: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN from BestBuy?


#1

I’m getting SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN in Firefox 53.0 on Win7-64 when trying to access https://bestbuy.com. and Chrome is giving me NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID.

Both Firefox and Chrome just hang forever with ‘waiting for bestbuy.com’ if I try https://www.bestbuy.com.

Firefox says: The owner of bestbuy.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

bestbuy.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.akamaihd.net, *.akamaihd-staging.net, *.akamaized-staging.net, *.akamaized.net, a248.e.akamai.net Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN

I’m behind an ISA Server firewall. I stopped being able to access bestbuy sometime after January.

I"m curious if any SSL guru has an idea what it could be? Has bestbuy really misconfigured their ssl - or are they trying to use a form of encryption that my older ISA Server can’t handle?

I can ping bestbuy.com - and have zero issues with any other site like Target or Amazon.

Thanks!!

I see similar problems, so I think they are actually having a configuration problem. Occasionally that does happen even for major sites.
