When I click a link to https://drive-image.com, Firefox gives me the security error:
Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to drive-image.com. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for drive-image.com. The certificate is only valid for the following names: secure.r-tt.com, www.drive-image.com, www.r-studio.com, www.r-tt.com, www.r-undelete.com, www.r-wipe.com
Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
But here's what makes it so bizarre: Clicking the link gives the error, but if I type that URL into the address bar, it works perfectly fine. I can even right-click the link > Open Link in New Tab (or Window) and it works fine. I originally found this because I searched "r drive image" in DuckDuckGo and that link was the first result. But it also happens in a very simple test HTML page I wrote, which just contains a link to that page.
When drive-image.com is loaded, it immediately redirects, so that the page actually shown is https://www.drive-image.com/.
Some more info:
- This is on my laptop (Windows 10 Home 64-bit), in Firefox (up to date, 113.0.2 (64-bit)).
- It also happens in latest Mullvad Browser, which is based on Firefox codebase.
- Also happens on my other computer, running Windows 10 Home 64-bit, in Firefox and Mullvad Browser.
- I created a new profile and it still happens using that.
- I turned off uBlock and Ghostery extensions, it still happens.
- I added an exception in Firefox Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection for drive-image.com and it still happens.
- It does not happen in Chrome or Edge.
- It happens with my VPN connected or disconnected, on both computers, which use different VPN servers when connected.
I've gotten the infrequent security error clicking what looks like a legitimate link before and shrugged it off, going elsewhere. But this time knowing the site was legit, I messaged their support and eventually ended up at this point after much investigating, and suspect something serious is amiss.
Images of the error are attached, along with an image of my test page's text if that matters (since I can't attach a text file).
Does anyone else get this error by clicking a link to that site? Is this a Firefox bug/issue, or an actual problem with their website/certificate?
