(If you don’t know, SSL certificates encrypt data sent between web browsers—like Google Chrome, Mozilla’s Firefox, and Apple’s Safari—and servers.) You can easily recognize if a site has a valid SSL certificate by the familiar green padlock in a URL bar. The point is, SSL certificates are extremely important to online security—which is why you should be aware of the recent findings discovered by Google.
