Message 96923 - Posted: 30 May 2020, 22:21:40 UTC - in response to Message 96882.  

I analyzed the ca-bundle.crt file and found out that AddTrust External Root certificate expired today.
I removed the expired certificate part from the file and now everything works normal for me again.

Here is a guide to a quick fix:
Backup all your sensitive data first, This is only tested on 1 computer so far.
Exit BOINC
Open file manager and go to C:ProgramFilesBOINC or wherever you have installed BOINC.
Make a backup copy of ca-bundle.crt just in case my instuctions screw up something.
Right click on ca-bundle.crt and open it with Notepad
Scroll down to AddTrust External Root, Below this is the expired certificate.
Delete everything from -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- to -----END CERTIFICATE----- including the begin and end lines.
Save the file
Start BOINC and try again.

Please let me know if this works or not.
Didn't have permission to edit file, so copied file to another location, deleted certificate as above, saved & moved back to BOINC directory, still unable to upload or download.

Mine works, but I pasted the new bit over it from https://crt.sh/?d=1720081

Those Windows permissions are really stupid. It tells me I don't have permission, then asks me if I want to grant myself permission (!!). But it doesn't ask that when saving from notepad. Doubly stupid.

Fine on my W7 desktop, same as you on my W10 laptop.
I had to confirm I was administrator (I was). Saved the downloaded file elsewhere, copied it to the Boinc folder and it allowed me to replace the old file (no idea why). And on the W10 laptop that was sufficient.
I've got a feeling I was just lucky now.

Ta, after no joy with my editing work i used the link Toby had supplied & that worked- thanks Toby.
Replaced the file, Retried transfers, and after a few seconds things started working again.

This worked fine for me, R@H is uploading and downloading again. THANK YOU Gylling!

I did the following (Windows 10):
run command prompt as administrator
cd "/Program Files/BOINC" (using backslashes, which I can't seem to make display OK)
copy ca-bundle.crt ca-bundle.crt.bak
notepad ca-bundle.crt
Ctrl+F External

Thanks for the fix, worked on Windows 10 BOINC 7.16.5.

Question is after having edited the file in such a way what exactly are we doing in terms of certifications? It would be nice if some project admins would clarify, or offer an ability to replace said file here at the Rosetta site. Also does the edit affect other projects, if so is it negatively?

Do not like the idea of meddling with files, I am not exactly clueless but I don't usually do such things.

Regards,

Antony

Editing ca-bundle.crt fixed upload/download error.
Thanks for the hint!

Although I do not understand why such a problem arose at all!
Only last week I installed the most recent version of BOINC - and it experienced the same problem. I also had to edit the certificate file.
Such things should be fixed by BOINC programmers centrally, rather than manually editing certificate file by each user.

By removing an expired certificate, all we’re doing is preventing BOINC attempting to use it to secure its communications with the project servers. We’re not adding anything, so we are not starting to trust any entity in the secure chain that we didn’t trust before.

I was wondering why my Rosetta tasks weren't uploading. I used Toby's patched file and it worked for me (didn't even need to restart BOINC for the fix to work. The same should apply to those who edited the file themselves, just save the changes and retry the transfers).
I hope BOINC gets an update very quickly that fixes this issue for those who are tech-illiterate, I see this becoming a problem.

Yes, no need to restart anything.

After replacing (or editing) cert file just press retry (on "Transfers" tab) and Update (on "Projects" tab) is enough to fully resume normal work.
Although full BOINC restart will work too of course.

Presumably this will rectify after midnight in each user's timezone? In Android 9 (Pie) the following DID NOT WORK:

1) Settings >> General >> Lock screen & security >> Advanced / Encryption & credentials >> Trusted credentials
2) Select AddTrust AB (AddTrust External CA Root)
3) Note that this cert expires 30 May 2020
4) Press DISABLE
5) Restart device
6) Restart BOINC

At least for me this does not rectify the uploads hanging. There is a RESET option when selecting the Rosetta@home project in the Android app, but I'm reluctant to select this as I could lose the work I'm attempting to upload. Setting the time/date to tomorrow (E.g. selecting timezone for Sydney) also did not resolve.


I'm on Android 8.0 and it didn't work for me. In the end, I was forced to abort all tasks and let some others timeout. This is not good. Fortunately, I have a really small cache.
I even tried disabling all the AddTrust AB certificates. No dice. I can't even re-add Rosetta after removing it (that probably means RESET won't work). I think one needs to remove those expired credentials outright to fix this (I don't think you can remove single credentials from Android).

Welp, I guess that's two Android devices down for me. One because of issues with BOINC and Android 9.0, plus the fact that I don't charge that device enough to meet the deadlines. One because of this certificate expiring.

I hope this gets resolved before we get a massive wave of tasks timing out.

run command prompt as administrator

Easier said than done: you have to go Windows key+R then Ctrl+Shift+Enter together

cd "/Program Files/BOINC" (using backslashes, which I can't seem to make display OK)
copy ca-bundle.crt ca-bundle.crt.bak

This didn't work as I get access denied.

WTF - why isn't the Rosetta admin fixing this snafu?

I think this is an issue with BOINC, not Rosetta. LHC@home is also affected, as well as NumberFields@Home.
My Mac is doing fine so far, which is rather interesting.

Alongside the issues here, which most of us here are solving on PCs though not on Android, the project front page <had been> showing maybe 780k completed tasks in the last 24hrs
About 21hrs later now it's only showing about 340k completed in the last 24hrs and will continue to drop for a few hours more. Maybe to 300k or even less.

This certificate having already expired, I'm not sure what anyone at Rosetta can do to push a solution to people who don't view the forums at all, let alone this topic. let alone if they've got the ability to implement a solution.

The most obvious route may be to put a Notice out through the Boinc Manager itself, though someone will have to prepare an idiot-proof set of instructions to do so.

The only other thing I can think of is for people here who are in teams to contact their other Rosetta team members and advise them how to solve the immediate problem.

Anyone else with any ideas before Admin and Mod.Sense get back to us with some clever solution of their own?

They might be able to change the servers’ SSL certificates to ones signed by CAs that aren’t affected by this client problem.

put a Notice out through the Boinc Manager

There might be a chicken-and-egg problem there: if the notices are fetched via HTTPS, and HTTPS isn’t working…

It only affects some projects, my Androids are doing other project work instead. I only know of LHC, Rosetta, and Numberfields needing the certificate.
