Cloudflaressl certificates being blocked
« on: October 07, 2015, 09:14:17 PM »
Personally I am getting very very fed up with Avast blocking sites as the site is using a cloudflaressl certificate. I dont want to have to put in individual overrides for each one and *.cloudflaressl.com doesnt appear to work either!

I tried via the contact form and never received a response. But if you search on google quite a few people seem to be getting the same error.

Thought it might be a good idea to gauge how many others are actually being affected by this and then with numbers show Avast directly how bad the problem is. I have used the product for years and recommended it to family and friends as the one to use.

also try retrojunk.com and see if you get this cloudflaressl error.
make sure that you have the https scanning enabled.

Snap, I don't know why AuserA couldn't access garfield.com as it is an HTTP page so no HTTPS scanning going on.

Not getting a cloudflare error, but I am getting another.

Whilst the page is displayed avast also mentions the blocking of a sub domain, distro-1.retrojunk.com, so many of the images are blocked.

It's starting to affect sites I go to that I know are safe including an art site. Can I get around it by putting the site on the exclusion list? Or would it have to be Cloudflare on the exclusion list?
