Problem opening bing.com ? ?

When I browse, I would like to go to bing.com but encounter trouble, my browser display warning (Look at the picture) “This is probably not the site you are looking for!” I’m sure this warning is happened because the wrong SSL certificate. Then I type it one by one carefully in the address bar, but to make it more confusing, I end up at a248.e.akamal.net really weird.

Are there any viruses on my PC that causing this, and how can I fix this?

Thank you

This is probably not the site you are looking for!

You attempted to reach www.bing.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as a238.e.akamai.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of www.bing.com. You should not proceed.

Hello Jai,

That is not a virus infection. Try to choose "click to proceed". If error still appear, that problem pertains to misconfiguration of your system date and time. Make sure your system date and time is current. Change your date and time to current. 

Double click on the time and date on your taskbar (lower right of your window where you can see the time). Then change the time and date. And restart your browser. That should work.

Hey Jai Zadok,

  • This is normally not the case while you browse normal website unless your computer is infected or even sometimes Hijacked.
  • It is because the file *hosts* located at

c:windowssystem32driversetc

            is altered by the hijacker or infected by any other means.

  • You just need to navigate to this folder and open the *hosts* file with a text editor i.e., notepad.
  • Now look carefully in the last lines where http://www.bing.com/ is written. If you can find www.bing.com or bing.com there you just need to remove this whole line from this file.
  • Just save the file with the following lines only (instructions etc written at the top shouldn’t be changed)

# Copyright (c) 1998 Microsoft Corp.

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP stack for Windows 98

# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

# Entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should

# Be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.

# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

# Space.

# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual

# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

# For example:

# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server

# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

127.0.0.1 localhost

Thanks

Hi

Sometimes the SSL error occurs because your date is incorrect. Correct your time and date and try to browse. Also visit this Techyv post to know more : Google Chrome SSL error problem
