All of a sudden, when the client is trying to sign onto Yahoo to get email, they see a "This Connection is Untrusted" warning. They used Firefox on Mac, signed onto Yahoo, then clicked on the Mail link on the Yahoo home page.

The key phrases they see are: uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is only valid for

(Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)

Is this an exploit?
