Using Google and IE to connect to a URL we get an error :-
The certificate that Chrome received during this connection attempt is not formatted correctly, so Chrome cannot use it to protect your information.
Error type: Malformed certificate
Issuer: GlobalSign Organization Validation CA - SHA256 - G2

The server is running WIndows 2003 server and the version of browsers as stated above. So on a development 2003 server I ran Windows updates and re-tried and the issue was resolved. I need to fix the issue on live 2003 servers but I do not want to run the complete Windows Update in case it breaks many other functions.
I am assuming there was an upgrade to support  new hashing algorithm SHA256 ?
Appreciate if anyone can shed light on this and more specific on what needs updating.
