    Mozilla, Chrome, and Safari to distrust WoSign/StartCom

    According to sources from Google and Mozilla, StartCom and its parent company WoSign will no longer be trusted by either Google Chrome or Mozilla products. Perhaps this could be the end of the CA well known for charging for Heartbleed revocations.
    StartSSL posted a news release in broken English stating they were suspending their paid offerings as a result of the browser sanctions.

    RE: Mozilla, Chrome, and Safari to distrust WoSign/StartCom

    An update, via Slashdot:

    "StartCom will stop issuing new certificates starting from January 1st, 2018" and "to revoke all remaining certificates in 2020."
