[cabfpub] 答复: 360 Browser & Cert Validation

Since last Oct, we have enabled the interception page to display warning messages for some sites which use invalid or expired certificates. But taking the China specific situation into consideration, this mechanism wasn't enabled for all sites. We have a list on cloud which controls for which sites the interception page should be displayed. And for those sites out of the list, we use the original means to warn the users, i.e., in both address-bar and the yellow infobar.

The list on cloud could be updated and come into force immediately when 360 sercurity team find any suspectables. So it can provide bothe the safety control and an acceptable experience for local users.

We'll add the free-certificates thing into our help page later to benefit the local sites and users.

Wasn't it supposedly corrected, as announced in https://cabforum.org/pipermail/public/2014-October/004356.html ?
