Both my browsers (Chrome and Safari) report BPL’s SSL certificate as having expired.
If correct, this means we users are vulnerable to security breaches. (User names and passwords being stolen, etc) Given how popular this site is, not a good thing…

This should be resolved in 24 hours or less.
Technically, it’s not an SSL issue. We had to move servers to a new IP and made the domain switch today, so there will be an interim period for a little bit today (10 minutes to several hours, depending on your DNS) when these warnings pop up.Nov 26, 2016 at 8:52 pm #3437498Rex SandersBPL Member
No problems now:
And a recently expired SSL certificate still protects user names and passwords as much (or as little) as an unexpired certificate.
It’s just a little less trustworthy.
