I realize that both of these issues have been reported to the Cocoatech developers, but I wanted to reiterate the post made by Ingo on August 12th as I observe the same issues. Actually, I have has the nmblookup issue with certificate used for all of the v8 versions.
Hopefully in letting you know that more people have these issues, will escalate the priority of publishing a fix......and (IMHO) the website cert should be fixed TODAY !! Going to the support site and being presented with a "this site may not be secure and somebody may be impersonating support.cocoatech.com", does not make Cocoatech look very good (or competent).

Since there is no need to re-invent the wheel here. Ingo did a great job of that, I am simply gong to repost (and add an attachment showing the error).

Hey there, I updated to PF 8.1. Afterwards little snitch blocked the samba connection pathfinder tried to open, because of a wrong code signature in /Applications/Path Finder.app/Contents/Frameworks/PathFinderNetwork.framework/Versions/A/Helpers/nmblookup

Then, when I tried to open https://support.cocoatech.com I run into a certificate error, since your certificate shows the wrong Domain Name.

Please explain what is going on there. I am in general a happy and more than once paying customer, but fishy TLS certificates and code signatures are not acceptable in 2018 anymore.

    I'm seeing this on https://support.cocaotech.com/ in Chrome.

    The invalid certificate belongs to tenderapp - who as far as I can see are the support-software providers, which presumably means they develop/ host/ maintain/ staff this support forum for Cocoatech,

    Agree with the points above. We're using PF to handle all kinds of local and remote server traffic, running terminal from it, etc etc. If the File Manager and its Developers' support site have invalid certificates this doesn't fill me with confidence in the rigour of the dev/commit methodology behind the current incarnation of the product.
