My website, here, is on my server (Debian Wheezy, Apache 2.4.10 on the testing repos). I configured Apache myself and blocked all attackable ciphers after reading many websites discussing those problems, and I have to say, this is not my specialty, as I'm a physicist. So please excuse my ignorance if I do something obviously wrong.

My cipher configuration in Apache is this:

SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3
SSLCompression off
SSLCipherSuite AES128+EECDH:AES128+EDH

And I tried an alternative explicit cipher config, which also gave the same problem:


So the problem is that Google Chrome (Version 42.0.2311.90 m) is giving an exclamation triangle when I open my website:

Google chrome displaying security problem

On the other hand, in SSLLabs, I get a very good ranking with no comments (though an explanation for the cipher 80% would be nice. What should I do to get a 90+%?)

SSL Ranking of my website

So my question is: How can I get google chrome (and probably other browsers) to stop complaining with that triangle?

If you require any additional information, please ask.

But your site looks ok on my chrome browser with the same version: enter image description here

  • Thank you for the response. The link you provided claims that I would have SHA1 signature, which is not true. I have an SHA256, and I have another site with definitely SHA256 and it also gives the triangle. What should I do to fix the certificates? Apr 21, 2015 at 17:19
  • Try to refresh the page.

    I'm trying to clear my cache but it's not working. I tried incognito to and it still shows the triangle. But I think you're right, I tried on another computer and I got that triangle removed... it's a very stupid caching system. Thank you for your time. Apr 21, 2015 at 17:37
