The message received was unexpected or badly formatted

Problem

The message received was unexpected or badly formatted.

HRESULT error: SEC_E_ILLEGAL_MESSAGE (0x80090326)

Cause

This error happens during the TLS protocol negotiation with the server. In most cases the server only supports an insecure protocol (SSL 3.0).

Solution

  • Contact the server administrator and request an upgrade of the server software.
  • Enabled weak and insecure ciphers on your system. We strongly recommend against this option.
