Re: revoked cert

Not if you are using Chrome...

In spite of the apparent positive spin, the fact remains they don't properly check for revocation. The last point in the article basically says they whole system is crap/broken (as we know) but offers no proper solution to the stupidly lax design of certificate issuing where ANY one of nearly a thousand issuers can sign an imposter certificate for any domain.
