Attention Essent Web Product
Customers – Google will stop recognizing Symantec security certificates.
Google announced that its Chrome browser will stop recognizing HTTPS certificates
issued by Symantec and Symantec-owned certificate authorities. Google said it
was discovered that Symantec and the Symantec-owned certificate authorities had
mis-issued more than 30,000 certificates.
Symantec says that far fewer certificates were mis-issued than
Google claims and that the mis-issued certificates resulted in no consumer
harm. Google nonetheless plans to stop recognizing Symantec certificates, and
Google Chrome will regard sites that use Symantec certificates as insecure.
What does this mean to you?
Essent has verified that our customers are not using any of the
affected security certificates issued by Symantec.
Essent customers that may be requesting new certificates from
Symantec should verify with Symantec that this won’t affect them.
