We understand that there is currently a problem with some SSL certificates issued by Globalsign, which may appear as "revoked" in some browsers. Our AlphaSSL certificates are provided by Globalsign.

The problem is related to an internal issue at Globalsign and we have been told that most site visitors will not experience any issues. The main problem has been resolved but some people may still experience a "revoked" error when visiting some websites for the next four or five days, as the certificate's root info is cached in the browser.

If you own a certificate that has been provided by us and is installed on our system, we can replace the affected root certificate with a new one for you. Please contact us via the support helpdesk if you would like us to do that.

If you purchased your certificate from us to use elsewhere, you can replace the CA root certificate with the one pasted below.

Here is the news story associated with this issue... http://www.zdnet.com/article/globalsign-security-certificate-foul-up-knocks-out-secure-websites/


Here is the replacement CA root, should you need it...
