    Windows Download site not private


    Went to the Windows Software Download site:
    Windows 10
    to download a new W-10 iso.
    From the above site, I clicked on the "All Windows downloads" link and got this:
    https://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads (The copy and paste doesn't show the "https" with a red line striking it out.
    The page says:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Your connection is not private

    Attackers might be trying to steal your information from windows.microsoft.com (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards).
    NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID


    Automatically report details of possible security incidents to Google. Privacy policy

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There's a tab below this that says "Back to Safety"

    Anyone familiar???

    Looks like a Microsoft error. The certificate is issued to *.windows.microsoft.com, but should be *.microsoft.com or windows.microsoft.com

    You can still view the non HTTPS version of the page by deleting the 's' from https (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads).

    But if you just want an ISO, just go to the bottom of the first page you said you went to and click on 'Download Tool Now' button. No need to go to 'All Windows Downloads'.

    Thanks, ARC.
    Got the iso.
    Odd to see such a somewhat obvious mistake on a MS download page.
