I was notified that "Something is preventing SeaMonkey from updating securely", and gave a link to the SeaMonkey site.
When I went there, and tried to download, I got the "This Connection is Untrusted" page, with the following details: uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate is only valid for the following names:
*, *, *, *,
Error code: <a id="errorCode" title="SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN">SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN</a>

The Macafee threat assessment site says is 'low threat'.

Has anyone else seen this? Is this a real problem? If this is the wrong place to post, please let me know.

bromosel, do you have NoScript?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
