Bitdefender Antivirus – False Positive

Hey,

Just a heads-up to Bitdefender Software users. Bitdefender is apparently flagging my site with a false positive at the moment. I’ve reached out to the Bitdefender Support Team to hopefully get clarification on why this is happening.

The message states: “The certificate used to encrypt your connection to this website could not be verified. Proceed with caution, attackers might try to steal sensitive information from you, such as passwords or credit cards.”

This is clearly something that Bitdefender does to many sites from time to time, and by judging from the posts that people have made earlier, this issue has been coming and going for a long time. The amount of sites during the years that got flagged for no reason seems to be huge. Google it and you’ll see for yourselves.

Here’s one example from 2018.
