hei , 

I am a newcome to Python. 

I am trying to create a python script which will connect to an SSL URL and using the HEAD request will get the status of URL. 

For one the link I am getting following error

[SSL: DECRYPTION_FAILED_OR_BAD_RECORD_MAC] decryption failed or bad record mac (_ssl.c:589)

I am using python on windows. 

Following is the code snippet

def checkURLStatusSecure(testhostname,urlsinatest):
    global conn, url, res

    for url in urlsinatest:
        conn = HTTPSConnection(testhostname,'443')
        conn.request('HEAD', url)
        res = conn.getresponse()
        print('|***https://' + testhostname + url + '| %s | %s |' % (res.status, res.reason))

Any idea why I am gtting the above mentioned error. 

Any help will be appreciable 

Python version in 3.4
