Slickdeals now getting error using Avast AV ... certificate issue with *.legit.com

TuckFigerDirect 1,668 524 September 26, 2015 at 10:53 AM
Just wondering if anyone using Avast AV has been getting a pop-up notice from the Avast program saying a certificate has been for *.lijit.com every time you open Slickdeals and any page within Slickdeals.

This has been popping up for the last several weeks and I can't find any info on how to fix it. This happens only on Slickdeals site .. no others.

Any help?

Thanks!

Did a little searching, found this post [digitalpoint.com] which leads me to believe your Avast notice may be well-founded If you're using Firefox or Chrome browsers, check for any unknown add-ins or extensions that may have been loaded and disable them.

Thanks so much Frog!!! Nice to get help with these kind of things. Its the only problem I have had since I have been on SD and was hoping it would just get fixed on its own since it was a certificate issue.

Thanks again and repped for the great help! Smilie

Good luck. These malware advertisers are ridiculously persistent. Be certain to double-check your system a day or two after cleanup, and again several days later.
