Sites using Symantec certs will stop working!

Postby viking60 » 12 Apr 2018, 16:16

Symantec has certified a lot of sites so they could run SSL (https). This certification did not seem very secure so Google and Mozilla decided not to trust them if Symantec did not clean up their act.

Symantec decided not to do so and sold the certification part instead.

So if you are running Chrome or Firefox many sites may disappear now.
You will still be able to accept the pages manually by accepting security exeptions in your browser.

So if you use a certificate from Symantec's old infrastructure; it is time to fetch a new certificate.
