Hi, I'm about to order some 5.10 CDs from shipit, at
http://shipit.ubuntu.com/
but I'm presented with a dialog stating:

Security Error: Domain Name Mismatch
You have attempted to establish a connection with
"shipit.ubuntu.com". However, the security certificate presented
belongs to "launchpad.net". It is possible, though unlikely, that
someone may be trying to intercept your communication with this
web site.

Using Firefox 1.0.7, Windows.

Is this correct? I can view the certificate, and as a geek, understand what it means, and think it's fairly safe, but for the non-geek, it just screams "Run Away! Insecure!"

Regards,
Matt

Don't worry, it's safe. Launchpad.net is the service which Ubuntu is using to be able to ship these free CDs. At least, I think that's the way it is. But one thing's for sure; it's pretty safe, so no need to worry.
