[liberationtech] Y! / SSL

I just got back to CN from a vacation. I’m now (in all three main Windows browsers) seeing yahoo.com automatically flip over to HTTPS--and then give a bad cert error. The *root* cert is listed as yahoo.com and is valid “23 Sep 14 to 23 Sep 15.”

 

Is Y! experimenting with making access to their resources always-only-HTTPS? Are they having certificate problems? “HTTP only” seems like a good direction in which to go, but teaching people to accept bad cert warnings seems like a bad direction in which to go.

 

Best,

Eric
