SSL Certificate Signed with the Revoked DigiNotar Certificate Authority

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56043

Synopsis

The SSL certificate for this service was signed by a compromised CA
certificate.

Description

The X.509 certificate of the remote host was signed by a certificate
belonging to a Certificate Authority (CA) called DigiNotar, which was
revoked due to a known compromise. You should verify that the remote
certificate indeed was obtained legally, and you should get a new CA
to sign it, as most web browsers are being updated to stop trusting
this authority.

Solution

Purchase or generate a new certificate for this service.
