Problem accessing websites, Vodafone inserting own security certificate

2: Seeker

Getting this error when trying to access imgur.com, an image sharing website. imgur.com is outright blocked everywhere, while occasionally links such as i.imgur will allow me to access the website.

 

Imgur is an exception in content controls on both my browser and broadband content settings. From what I've heard this error is Vodafone attempting to read my traffic even though it should be outside their content controls, and Chrome is correctly picking up that Vodafone's certificate doesn't match Imgur.

 

I'm getting errors with other sites such as nexusmods.com's login server as well, even though they are also on the 'allowed' list. All of these problems appeared after switching to Vodafone from Sky, which had less obstructive content controls that didn't attempt to intercept traffic unrelated to content control.

Login server is definitely not down, I have a friend on another ISP who's accessing the website with no issues.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

vodafone3.pngContent controls turned completely off..

 

vodafone4.pngexcept it appears that content controls are still on.

 Just turned content control completely off and content control is still attempting to intercept my traffic. Content control is still looking at my traffic even though it's disabled.

 

I'd appreciate if someone could help with this annoying error, which shouldn't be happening from content control considering that Chrome is registering this as a man-in-the-middle attack.

 

I'll be grateful for any assistance in resolving this.

I noticed this too. When following links from reddit to imgur im getting the same error message and I also have content control turned off.

Just thought I'd let you know I've solved it on mine by changing the default DNS server on the router to Google's DNS that seems to bypass vodafone content blocker.

Thanks, Andrew, that's worked for getting to Imgur just in my browser.

 

Problem with Content Control is still happening with the Nexus Mods server, though. Vodafone should stop trying to apply their filter to my traffic if I've disabled it.
