Re: Website Certified by an Unknown Authority?
I'm running Linux and the problem only occurs when I'm using Tor, so I
don't think that's the case here. I also observe/analyze my network
traffic, so I don't think that my host(s) are part of a botnet.
Any other clues?

Try scanning with Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware, and an Antivirus
program. Sounds like you might be part of a botnet.

Yes, I know what a self-signed certificate is.. But the point is, that i'm
not trying (or wanting) to access hackshaven at all. It doesn't matter if
I'm on google, or anywhere else, the message still comes popping up from
time to time. Actually, it doesn't even matter if I'm using a https
connection or not.

That just means that hackshaven doesn't have their SSL cert certified by
trusted (according to firefox) authority such as verisign inc. The

I Have a weird problem with Tor. Every once in a while when I'm happily
browsing the net with Firefox 126.96.36.199 using Tor 0.1.1.17-rc, I get this
from Firefox, saying "Website Certified by an Unknown Authority...
verify the identity of www.hackshaven.com as a trusted site". The
always warns me from the same site, www.hackshaven.com, the strangest
that I'm not trying to access the site at all.
It doesn't matter what site I'm trying to access, or is Firefox only
my RSS feeds. I tried to sniff my traffic with Ethereal, but it didn't
that my host was accessing the hackshaven ip at all.
I noticed that there is a Tor node named "hackshaven", and it shares
ip with the site, so I'm guessing it's the same host=) I also tried to
the node to the excludenodes list, but it didn't seem to do any good.
So my question is, what the hell is happening here? Sounds really fishy
Could it be something involving the way the SOCKS proxy works? But
interact with the Tor nodes in a "different level"? Is hackshaven
a man-in-the-middle, or is this something else?
Please explain this to me, I'm confused.
