Just tried to log in and got a security certificate error.

"The identity of this website or the integrity of this connection cannot be verified"

(check) The security certificate is from a trusted certifying authority.

(check) The security certificate date is valid.

(exclamation mark) The name on this security certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site.

"Do you want to proceed?"

The certificate says it was issued to * by Go Daddy Secure Certificate Authority-G2, and valid from
21/02/14 to 21/02/2017

Not sure if it's down to browser, windows update, or evil, malignant naughtiness, but I thought I'd better let you know, just in case there's any skullduggery going on.

Yeah, I posted about it. I guess it started today.

I'm not sure if its virus or server problem.

It seems to be affecting file uploads and apparently audio and vid.

Last time I checked, metadata entry wasn't showing a cert warning.

I was able to upload, through the warning using IE8, but trying Chrome got me as far as upload until it verified the problem. So much for advanced security.

Anyway, we're all waiting for an official answer, but I'm sure they're working on it.
