Hi, @keys-defender I am reaching to you because I am afraid I might have a security comprimise when using https://3speak.tv and you seem knowledgeable about Hive blockchain security.

The SSL certificate seems to be invalid, I have made a post about it to see if I can get some help, or even to know if it is just me:
https://hive.blog/hive-181335/@igormuba/issue-with-3speak-ssl-ceritificate-careful-with-phishing

I am waiting to use the platform when the issue is solved, but I am reaching out to you to see if you can help me understand what happened, if it is just me, or it is indeed a security compromise, or anything else or in between.

Thank you.

It was a temporary issue with their certificate, it likely expired. All good now.

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.
