If your browser has been throwing security warnings or errors when you
try to access the web server at febo.com (for example, the list
archives), that problem should now be fixed.
I was using an SSL certificate issued by StartSSL, a company that has
sort of shot themselves in the foot due to their ownership structure and
lack of transparency. A few months ago the major browser vendors have
stopped recognizing certs issued by StartSSL, and their browsers now
give warnings when they encounter a StartSSL cert.
There's no evidence that my certificate was vulnerable or was ever
compromised, but I've now changed over to certificates from a
widely-supported group called LetsEncrypt, and you shouldn't see any
further security warnings.
