Default AustinHomebrew.com Site Certificate (EDIT: Certificate is fine)

So I went to place an order tonight with AHB and my browser warned me about a possibility that my information could get out. Something about not recognizing the certificate of protection. Has anyone seen this before? I was planning on just calling the store tomorrow when they open to place the order. Just kind of spooked me when I read the pop-up.

Sounds like standard Windows BS...I use government websites all the time and still get this warning. I think you should be ok. If you feel better calling them, then do so. Might get your order out a little quicker.

So anyways, back on topic, take the pissing contest somewhere else....
(wow, look at ME bringing a conversation back on topic )

I have bought a large amount through Austin Homebrew and have never had a problem, in fact, I am about to order a March pump through them here in the next day or so.

Forrest, the owner of Austin Homebrew frequents this board, so I am sure if we mention his name (Forrest) and Austin Homebrew enough times in this thread, I am sure Forrest will come by and answer all of your questions.

Oh yeah, one more plug, Forrest and Austin Homebrew are AWESOME!

If you go and click the VeriSign logo on the bottom left of the page it says the site is secure and the certificate is good till April of 2010:

It doesn't get much more secure that that.

I don't mean to knock AHB. I am sure it is a safe and secure site and company. Just got me worried. Guess I am an overly paranoid person by nature...

EDIT: I did click on that however, and this was the message I got:

"Site Certificate Not Found

We cannot find the Site Certificate you are looking for! "

Placed an order this morning - Verisign Certificate is good. There's another one (Securmetrics, I think) that says it has issues. Could just be a problem with the link. As long as the Verisign cert is good, I'm happy.
