Hello, I am able to reach mafia scum website just fine from home.

When I am at work I can reach it using any mobile device while on the work wifi

On my work PC, with all browsers, when I try to go to mafiascum I instead get a file called download.gz from what I googled it has something to do with my work pc not liking the new ssl cert. I didn't have this problem at work until recently so it make sense. Anyone got an Idea on how to fix this? Is there some setting I can use to get around this sort of thing?

I can tell my work wi-fi didn't start blocking mafiascum since I can access the site just fine on any mobile device with the wi-fi on.

Thoughts?

Which browser do you use on your work computer?

Can you try accessing MafiaScum with no extensions/plugins/etc loaded?

Ever spend an hour with Kison trouble shooting an issue with the site? I just did. Still trying to figure it out. If we find a solution one of us will post it on off chance anyone else gets the issue and needs help. Its a good thing I at least got one OK machine or I would have assumed the Site crashed again. TIGERS!

There are still some issue going on. I was able to message Kison and make 1 post this morning but after that the problem began to reoccur so Kison''s fix to the cert name did not hold. To my knowledge nothing has changed on my end so not sure where to go from here unless Kison wanted to turn the cert off completely which I am sure he does not want to do. Maybe getting 3 certs one named for site one named for wiki one named for forum. Not sure what else can be tried

Separate cert for each subdomain is probably the best idea. There's no harm in doing it anyways, and it's likely slightly more secure than one for all.

@PokerFace has this always happened on HTTPS (aka you've never been able to successfully visit MS over HTTPS at work)?

Also, can you visit normal HTTPS sites?

Talk to Kison if you want to understand my problem. He likely understands it better than me at this point.

The best way I can describe it is as follows. When Mafiascum did not have a cert, when it was reachable by http and not https, there was no issue.

Mafiscum didn't have a cert until recently, see Kison's recent announcement thread. When it got a cert is when I started having problems. My workplace PC/internet is inserting its own cert in place of MS's because it does not like the MS cert for some reason. I basically can't use the PC or MAC at my work place to access Mafiascum.

Until the issue gets solved, consider me on permanent V/la weekdays 7am-6pm

Luckily I am not in any games right now. Sadly though there were some games I was planning on modding in the near future. I am taking applications for co-mods since I may need some help to run these games now

When MS went to https my work place did not like its particular cert authority

My Work place has been found to change how they handle secure sites every 6 months. Back in September Kison and I did some more trouble shooting but no luck.

I was planning to do some more trouble shooting with Kison after I accessed the February 20 changes that were made this year. However it seems more trouble shooting is not going to be needed. The changes my work place made this year have allowed it to recognize mafiascum's cert correctly now. as I result, I can access the mafiascum website from my pc again.

Also given the ms cert history from kison, and the records I have of my workplaces changes, I believe I have a solution to the problem should the issue reoccur

TLDR, I'm back at full capacity :) Should anyone every come across a similar problem, reach out to kison and or me, and I may have a solution for you.
