Admin check for updates error

Hi

In the admin dashboard, i get an error next to the NorrCompetition images, at 'Updates - An error getting version'
Logfile:
SSL: unable to obtain common name from peer certificate in CompetitionHelperExtension on line 234

In the file administrator/components/com_competition/helpers/extension.php at line 223 I added:
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);

This solved my problem.

Best regards
Dennis

Do you run a SSL website? We do not have this error on our SSL websites and also on non-SSL websites.

Hi Dmitry

Yes I use SSL on my website, a cheap one with only domain validation.

Best regards

Hmm... I see :) Seems that proper verifying is useless in the process of getting file and will not affect any security in this case. So will add this line to the code to fix an error. Thanks.
