URGENT: Windows Update Will Prevent Use of Certificates With Weak Keys

Posted: August 13, 2012 in Information Technology

Thanks to Martin Smith for bringing this one to my attention. Microsoft are releasing an update that will enhance security by preventing the use of certificates with a key size less than 1024 bits. Hopefully, you are already using certificates with at least this level of complexity. However, you might have some legacy applications or services that aren’t. Now is the time to get them up to date!
