This has been happening across my connections recently.
apparently others are experiencing difficulty with various Google services, not limited to front of house.

What's going on behind the curtain?

If you keep seeing that error when using websites that use https:// or TLS (the secure padlock), then it means that you are a victim of a "man in the middle" attack where someone is attempting to wiretap your internet traffic. This will allow a hacker to know every web page you visit, the content of every form you submit, and get your password when you login to websites.

Your web browser (firefox) has detected this MITM (man in the middle) attack and is showing you this error with no way to bypass it, to prevent you from being hacked.

This is common on public wifi hotspots and hacked routers.

That particular error means that Firefox has attempted to establish a secure connection with all of its configured cipher suites and the website doesn't support any of them.

This means that either someone's performing a cipher downgrade attack (and supplying a list of cipher suites that Firefox doesn't support) or OP has configured his Firefox to only use the strongest of ciphers which a bunch of websites don't support.

If it's the former then it's brown trousers time as cipher downgrade attacks theoretically shouldn't be possible with modern TLS versions.

Try visiting this site and see if there's a misconfiguration in your Firefox config: https://www.howsmyssl.com/

If nothing shows up there you can check the cipher suites supported by a site that's giving you problems and compare to the ones supported by Firefox. If your browser and the site have a supported cipher suite in common and you're getting that error then someone is indeed playing a game of les buggeures risibles.

I got this when I moved into a house where Virgin had the pornblocker on. Then I...did something with DNS on my browser and it was fine again. Then I moved into a new house where the wifi also had pornblocker and got it again despite trying the same steps that had worked before. It only happens when I try to go on porn sites or 4chan etc, and it stops if I use a VPN too.

Is it really something to worry about? Also if it is, then what's the best way to go about sorting it? I'd assume my phone and google account are compromised too.

Do you really need to ask this question?

Try fixing the porn blocker though as I understand Firefox is temperamental on this. You can just ring up and say 'Hello, I wish to observe pornographic material for research purposes please' or if you lack the bottle then set google public DNS which is what I use when I visit my parents and may still work. Don't judge me. Judge my father.

Possible explanations in rough order of probability:

You've turned on HTTPS-Only mode in your Firefox privacy settings, which is causing connections to fail rather than fall back to HTTP when you connect to a site with misconfigured SSL.

Your ISP is doing some sort of MITM attack to block sites or inject advertising or tracking. You can usually prevent this by changing your DNS provider to one that supports DNS over HTTPS.

You've been infected with some sort of malware that is using an MITM attack or something is badly mangled in your network configuration. This is more likely if you're seeing the error on one device across different network connections, but not on other devices. Try an antivirus or a clean install of Windows.

You're in Kazakhstan.

You're under attack by spooks.

Remember when Ccleaner was hacked just before it was sold to Avast? Well, 2 months after experiencing the problems mentioned in >>5244, I was informed that my ISP had been bought by Shell Energy.

It also happens to be that a new neighbour moved in around the same time, who claimed to work for in counter-terrorism for MI5.

It also happens to be that my contract was up for renewal around the same time - so i suppose it's possible i experienced 'techical difficulties' assosiated with the handover of data (especially considering the adult filter was briefly re-enabled on my account).

I don't know which sting of thought to go with. It's all rather weird.

If someone tells you that they work for MI5, they definitely don't work for MI5.

Yeah, this is my thought on the subject. The issue becomes that anyone interested in appearing so may have knowledge of electronic surveillance, thus access to the relevant gadgetry required to attack my router. It seems the least likely cause, for sure.

Yeah, that's a bit of an obvious red herring, I wouldn't include it in the final draft.

Is shifty? Generally I use Googly ones, but I'd be mildly keen on something less likely to haunt me. Although I'm sure Google have enough tentacles that they'd notice me appearing on webpages without using their DNS and figuring out I'd decamped. What they'd do with that, I'm not sure.

It's run by Cloudflare, who are the biggest CDN provider in the world. It's undoubtedly more secure and private than using your ISP's DNS service and faster than Google DNS.

Cloudflare are, broadly speaking, Good Guys - they're pretty militant about free speech and have been well ahead of the curve in rolling out DNS-over-HTTPS.

Fair warning, if you use then archive.* breaks because the people that run it are idiots.

Because it wasn't maintained, presumably.
