Problem with AOL (OSCAR) certificate.

Description

Hello, I tried to log into my AIM today and I get this message:

"Accept certificate for bos.oscar.aol.com?

The certificate for bos.oscar.aol.com could not be validated.

The certificate has expired and should not be considered valid. Check that your computer's date and time are accurate."

The strange thing is this is after my account logs in. Also when I view the certificate here is what it says:

"Activation date: Tue Jan 18 16:01:20 2011

Expiration date: Thu Jan 17 16:01:20 2013"

So I'm assuming that AOL's certificate expired? This has happened to me a long time ago with MSN and I had to update pidgin to fix it. I would like to see pidgin auto update certificates if they expire.

Anyways I just want to make sure this is a legit problem, and not being compromised.

Thanks

That certificate has expired. It's up to AOL to make sure everything's working on their servers.
