I don't read Persian, but from the translation and the links provided, it looks like it talks about Microsoft removing the certificate from their trusted list. That fixes it for IE on Windows Vista and 7, but not for Windows XP and 2003 (Server). Instructions for that are here:

Also, in case anyone uses Opera, they've confirmed that they removed it from their centralized list:

I posted my own real-quick roundup to the MayFirst issue queue, if anyone else wants links to all the browser/OS how-tos:

This was then translated by a non-technical Iranian colleague. I am grateful for the input I've received from a number of people, and the translation work prepared by unnameable individuals. A PDF was also compiled in light of how information is generally circulated in some circles.
