Hi,

I am trying to access the following site: https://fedexmeia.hire.com/
using Firefox web browser.

But I am getting a page display that says the following:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to fedexmeia.hire.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely,
sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.


What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to
this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.


Technical Details

fedexmeia.hire.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate expired on 5/29/2009 10:43 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)


>I Understand the Risks

If you understand what's going on, you
can tell Firefox to start trusting this site's identification.
Even if you trust the site, this error could mean that someone is
tampering with your connection.

Don't add an exception unless
you know there's a good reason why this site doesn't use trusted identification.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Is it safe then to go ahead and access the website or not? Also, does anyone else get the same error or is it just me?

Please help...

That is a built in warning system of Firefox.

Yes. I get it too. At this point it is totally up to you whether you proceed or not.

I had no reason to so I did`t.

It's another way of saying the S in https is no longer valid. So it's not a secure link. Thats the warning you get. It's also a freq
