"Website certificate is revoked" is displayed when visiting legitimate web pages

Issue

  • The following notification appears on your desktop: "Website certificate revoked"
     
  • You are experiencing issues accessing sites online that you can usually access
     
  • This issue affects all internet users and is the responsibility of the certificate owner, not ESET

Solution

This warning is displayed when your ESET product detects that the security certificate for a website is expired or revoked.

ESET cannot resolve the issue because only the owner of a domain can renew their security certificate. However, you can choose to continue to the site using the insecure certificate. Steps to continue to the site will depend on which internet browser you are using.

Disabling SSL or TLS filtering will reduce your level of protection!

We do not recommend that you disable SSL/TLS filtering (or exclude your default browser from SSL scanning) unless you are an experienced user. Doing so will significantly reduce the ability of your ESET product to detect threats hidden using HTTPS.

If you continue to experience issues accessing sites, clear your CRL and OCSP cache
