    Random Security Alert from cloudflare-dns.com?


    I have absolutely no idea what this is, but I keep getting a security alert pop up in the background every minute or so, and when I click for more details it says the certificate is intended to ensure the identity of a remote computer from cloudflare-dns.com. I don't know what that is and Google hasn't been particularly helpful so far. Any help is appreciated.

    Windows version 1809

    Here's what the certificate issuer (digicert) says about this error: Error: "The name on the security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.". In my experience this is not usually a serious or troublesome indicator of certificate or security problems. Usually results from misconfiguration errors at the website or service provider. You'd think a DNS provider would be totally clued-in to this, and avoid such errors as a matter of course. Apparently not!
