Expired certificate on LV website

Postby johnlane » Thu May 04, 2017 8:54 am

There is an expired certificate on the linuxvoice website for the domain 'backup.linuxvoice.com' from where a script file called 'piwik.js' is loaded. I get the error every time I open the website in Qutebrowser, so it's somewhat annoying :cry:

My firefox silently ignores the error and loads the site without that script (I am not sure why it doesn't pop up an error - as far as I can tell I haven't set an exception for it. But that's a whole other story...).

The cert is a LetsEncrypt one, expired on Sep 25 14:25:00 2016 GMT:

Code: Select all
$ openssl s_client -connect backup.linuxvoice.com:443 </dev/null 2> /dev/null |  openssl x509 -noout -text 
        Version: 3 (0x2)
        Serial Number:
    Signature Algorithm: sha256WithRSAEncryption
        Issuer: C = US, O = Let's Encrypt, CN = Let's Encrypt Authority X3
            Not Before: Jun 27 14:25:00 2016 GMT
            Not After : Sep 25 14:25:00 2016 GMT
        Subject: CN = backup.linuxvoice.com

You ought to have a cron job to regularly update your certs. I've just done my server a couple of days ago, having just moved off StartSSL :)
