Verizon Digital Media Services completed our upgrade of SSL (e.g., TLS) certificates to SHA-2. This upgrade has affected our portals as well as *.edgecast.com. The industry has found vulnerabilities in SHA-1 that make it susceptible to “collision attacks”. This upgrade will affect a very small percentage of our users that are still using older browsers.
We recently advised our customers to switch over to SHA-2 because soon, many browsers will no longer support SHA-1. SHA-2 provides a more secure and robust type of encryption, protecting websites and ensuring the security of our customers.
