For all you LinkedIn users, have you noticed that you can’t login or re-authenticate? This is because the Security Certificate expired today.
http://www.linkedin.com uses an invalid security certificate.
The certificate expired on 06/07/2008 08:53.
(Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)
It’s easy to call the guys from LinkedIn, which has Got A Billion Dollar Valuation and collected 53 million in the last round of funding, stupid.
This is a business risk, to mitigate this a simple calender item could be created which alerts at least a week before expiration. Naturally it would be better to have your own PKI system with which you could easily create a new certificate rather than rely on an external vendor for new certificate creation. Although some provide the facility to create a new certificate online. To have anything expire on any day other than Mon-Thu, preferably round 12pm localtime is really really bad management.
