Lunar New Year email links to NCSoft website with bad cert

On Feb 2 I received an email from [email protected] that announced the new Lunar New Year content. Most of the many links in the email direct to guildwars2.ncsoft.com. But all of the web-browsers I've tried prevent me from loading those pages, claiming the connection is not secure. Apparently the problem is that the https cert for ncsoft.com is linked to bluehornet.com, and not ncsoft.com. I'm guessing that ncsoft hired bluehornet to do marketing for them, but messed up the cert.

I'm suspect this is all a legit error, and not phishing, but end users aren't supposed to have to guess about this stuff. (I personally haven't overriden the security warnings to plow through to the website myself) If there's somone from the companies reading this (arenanet, ncsoft, bluehornet, etc) please forward the info to the proper team for investigation/correction.
