Expiring CA Certificates May ream you

Having a blast updating firmware on Routers, cameras, streaming devices, VOIP phones, lightbulbs, fridges,smart TVs, phones, etc.

 

Why because many Certificates have expired the S in your https://, have either expired or are expiring.

 

Having a blast, hope you all do as well. Spent last week cursing at a Tesla S after updating the firmware of it router, and it’s onboard computer, followed by tv, etc.

 

Not saying everyone will get hit but, you might like to start practicing how to update firmware, the joy of the modern age.


Thankful that my house is still dumb, including it’s appliances.

Only 2 smart lightbulbs, and my router. The Smart DVD player only took 10 minutes, it was the poor man’s way to a smart TV.🤣

If you use Spectrum they may fix some for newer customers today, that have home phones routed through there routers.

 

AKA VOIP OR voice over ip.

Had my first report in Maine, for Spectrum phone issue.
