Let’s Encrypt Revokes 3 Million Certificates Due to CAA Bug
Imagine receiving a TLS warning on your browser every time you visit your website for 60 days straight. Definitely not an ideal situation and you would certainly want to avoid it at all costs, correct?
Let’s Encrypt SSL, a certificate authority run by the Internet Security Research Group (ISRG) and responsible for around 116 millions active SSL certificates, reported this weekend that they found a bug on their domain control validation process. As a result, they revoked around 3 million SSL certificates today.
