    Flame malware and security-certificate issues


    By Susan Bradley

    Microsoft has released a rare out-of-cycle security advisory for the Flame malware.

    Flame and a letter from a reader highlight possible cracks in our trust of Internet security certificates.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/patch-watch/flame-malware-and-security-certificate-issues/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Not directly related to this week's section, but are you aware of any patch that would account for so many of us having problems with getting WMP to work? After years of using it with no problem, it has suddenly refused to open, and I see many other similar complaints on various forums.

    IE9: Security certificate error message

    Can you comment on the following: I have noted that I get an error popup with IE9 when viewing any of a number of sites (i.e. United Airlines, http://www.united.com): "Internet Explorer has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors." If I click "Show content", somtimes I continue to receive the error but not othertimes. Note that I haven't asked for https... only the normal http:... This happens on several machines, including a virgin Win 8 system. No other browsers complain.

    I think it means that some piece of added stuff, an ad perhaps, is causing the error message. There doesn't seem to be any indication of which third-party site is involved. So, how can I identify the culprit to bring it to the webmaster's attention?
