So I wrote "gog.com" and klicked enter and got a warning:

"www.gog.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for the following names:
a248.e.akamai.net , *.akamaihd.net , *.akamaihd-staging.net

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)"

It also said that someone might be trying to make a fake site to trick people thinking the4y are loging in to gog.com.

Anything we should be worried about?
Welcome...bzzzt ... PKCrusader... this is the GOG forum. You are now writing in the official GOG forum general discussion section.

Yes, you should always worry about that warning.

However that doesn't mean it's GOG's fault (it could be, but I don't get the warning). Are you using any proxy? Perhaps a debugging tool such as fiddler?
I get fake Amazon messages all the time. They tell me there is a problem with my account and that I need to log on and fix it. I don't see how that would work with GOG though because they don't keep any payment information. Maybe if they wanted to steal you Carmageddon cutouts it would be worth it. :P

Akamai is a legitimate service that does "content delivery"; a company's Web assets may actually be hosted on Akamai, which provides better location and bandwidth (at a price, of course).

It's a common problem to get an Akamai certificate instead of a certificate for the company you were trying to reach. Akamai doesn't implement certain hosting use cases, particularly where only some of the Web assets are hosted on Akamai, very well.

So I would not be too concerned with getting an Akamai certificate when using a secure page on gog.com. Everybody gets these from time to time. Even the White House has this problem.

Its Akamai's fault.

Bing, Adobe, and a few hundred other high profile websites have also been 'affected'.

Nothing to worry about at all.
Ah, thats good to hear. Thanks! :)
