Default eavesdropping?


I am trying to access a secure website (https) from my workplace, I use
Firefox2 running from an USB for that, the problem is that the browser
complaints that the site certificate does not match with the site name
and in looking at it closer I see this:

"Common Name: localhost.localdomain
Organization: SomeOrganization
Serial number: 00"

And so on, is it possible the administrator of the network I am using is
eavesdropping on my https connexions? And if that is the case, can I get
around this?

Needless to say that I have rejected such certificate.
