    What is happening here?
    Eset is blocking the official site of the Dutch Data Protection Authority

    The site is https://autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl/

    Wikipedia NL
    https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoriteit_Persoonsgegevens
    Wikipedia EN
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_Data_Protection_Authority

    What is this kind of nonsense? :thumbd:

    The issue is explained (alas only in Dutch) here on this official site:
    Intrekking PKIoverheid certificaten
    https://www.logius.nl/actueel/blog-pkioverheid-certificaat-vervangingsplan

    They know about it. It will be fixed. According to that site it will be fixed on 31 January 2021, as far as I understand it. Well, let's wait and see...

    ESET is not to blame, in no way!!

    And I was wrong there too.
    There is a .pdf file in English at the NCSC-NL site:

    To end this story:
    I tried it again and nomore problems. So, it must have been fixed on their end.

    I would like to thank @Marcos again for pointing me in the right direction!
    After his post (and some other contacts) I suddenly did realize that the problem was far more spread on official Dutch sites and that I did read about it before (but had forgotten about).

    Let's hope that the issue on other official Dutch sites is fixed too (or will be fixed by the end of January).

    Once again: this was in no way caused by ESET !!

    End of story
