Bypass “This Server’s Security Certificate… ” Error


Warning, proceed with caution. The website in question might be compromised by a hacker.

A woman called me and wanted me to print up a few sewing patterns for her. But when I tried to get to the website, I got a warning message that ”This Server’s Security Certificate Is Revoked!”. I found a simple workaround that allowed me to get to that web page. A secure site would start with HTTPS://, so I just dropped the S. In front of the site name I typed HTTP://. It worked in this case. As the security warning states, proceed with caution and if it’s a site you have to sign into, I don’t recommend you do this.
