    Unable to sign in to my BBC account...


    I have a new pc which I have been in the process of setting up,
    I have tried to sign in to my BBC account without success, I keep
    getting a security warning saying I don't have a private connection ( I do),
    I have no issues with any other sites,only with the BBC.
    I believe Windows may have revoked the certificates for the site now,
    so,my question is " how do I access the BBC iPlayer and sign in?".

    Looks like it's the intermediate certificate that has been revoked. I.E. The actual GlobalSign (Certificate Authority) cert, rather than the www[.]bbc.co.uk leaf certificate. That's urm... interesting to say the least.

    There's not a lot you can do for the moment, as only the BBC or GlobalSign can resolve this. For some reason Edge will display the https://www.bbc.com/signin signin page, but I wouldn't recommend it for now because I'm not sure why the GlobalSign cert has been revoked. Although it's possible it was revoked by GlobalSign in a pretty monumental cock-up, the certificate may also have been revoked for a genuine reason and therefore cannot be trusted until we know the reason why it was revoked.

    So, hold tight for the time being.


    Edit:
    The below pic is from the GlobalSign website, but the same still stands. Just wait for them to sort it out their end.


    Any other website certificates that were signed with that same revoked GlobalSign certificate will also have the same problem until it's sorted out (I.E. www[.]theguardian.com, www[.]eurotunnel.com, etc.).
