I've been getting SSL certificates from various websites recently that are
apparently from a "VerySign Class 1 Authority" - note the 'y' in VerySign.
The certificate expired 6 December 2002.
The data in Issued To and Issued By are identical.
This smells very much like an SSL hijack attempt - can anyone shed some
light on the situation?
