I assume this is a SharePoint services issue. There's an attesting dll
which is codesigned with a certificate. I assume either this dll is missing
or the certificate has expired. The other possibility is that the software
has changed without a corresponding change to the table signatures. This
would most likely be an upgrade issue.
