LinkedIn has expired SSL certificate!


Today www.linkedin.com HTTPS certificate expired. Seems they have forgotten to renew it. Quite shameful for a company that promises privacy and security of user’s information.
Here’s what Firefox 3 told me when I visited the website and tried to sign-in.

Logging in bypassing this cert security error is not an option for me. So, for all practical purposes, linkedin is down for me.
