Is this for real?
« on: April 23, 2009, 11:16:56 AM »
Could a COMODO staff member say whether or not this is a legitimate certified web site by COMODO?

http://www.abelssoft.net/

They claim it is. But, all I see is a image. And, a image is not enough.


Thanks

Precisely.

So, if the website is not being certified by COMODO, it makes me question why the certified logo is there and if that's even the real deal.

I'm wondering what COMODO has to say about it.

I entered the domain of their online shop in the search box of the mentioned page and those pages are validated and authentic.

But, the domain www.abelssoft.net isn't. And, the COMODO certification logo is there to show people their domain is the real deal, since its certificated, in this case by COMODO, when the certificate for the domain does not come from COMODO.

I'm not saying the site is fake or anything like that, but, the first time I checked it, I see that, despite there's the COMODO logo there, the certificate for that domain is not from COMODO.

This confuses people. It sure confused me.

I've checked the site.(www.abelssoft.net)=(85.25.20.226)It's from Germany.
There is a VeriSign certicicate for online shop(www.cleverbridge.com)
(as you know, VeriSign is the world top SSL provider.)
And there is no more certificates.

Interesting...
