Yahoo Forgets to Renew Security Certificate for Publisher Network

Jan 30, 2008 • 7:47 am | comments (12) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Publisher Network

When Yahoo Publisher Network publishers try going to the YPN Portal, they are now presented with a security prompt. If you look closely at that error, it says that their secure certificate has expired.

Yahoo Publisher Network Security Cert

It expired a day ago. I guess Yahoo is trying to cut costs wherever they can, including security. Of course I am kidding. Often companies forget to renew their security certificates. I am sure it will be resolved shortly and I am sure the site is still secure, it just doesn't have the Equifax seal of approval.

This problem is not solved yet, so Yahoo does't want to spend money into security.

It's carzy. A lot of people are having this problem again with Yahoo Mail. Every year it happens and it's the smae thing for 2 weeks. That's why I no longer use Yahoo for anything. Those SSL Certificates are extremely important because they assure you that your information is encrypted and some what secure so I would not and do not use Yahoo any longer.

Funny when this page opened I had the same problem here too. Amazing how bad Yahoo is getting these days. I no longer use their services either.

Every second visit to the sign in page in any browser on my computer shows "site certificate" can't be identified, because it's trying to go to In Chrome the error message is This webpage is not available The webpage at might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.Error 501 (net::ERR_INSECURE_RESPONSE): Unknown error.I've tried using their suggested solution to get the a valid logon page, but it seems not to be working any more I am not impressed!

Does that mean it's NOT a valid login page?  Or a safe login page?
