Saw this article about LetsEncrypt, the service I use to get my HTTPS certificates, accidentally revoking millions of certificates… and then noticed the email from them in my inbox informing me that they’re very sorry, but all of my domains are affected.
On Wednesday, March 4, Let’s Encrypt – the free, automated digital certificate authority – will briefly become Let’s Revoke, to undo the issuance of more than three million flawed HTTPS certs.The Register: Let’s Encrypt? Let’s revoke 3 million HTTPS certificates on Wednesday
Luckily fixing it was as simple as SSH’ing into my server and running certbot renew –force-renewal, so it was no great emergency. Still, I imagine tomorrow a whole swathe of domains across the internet will be suddenly insecure and promoting browser warnings all over the place.
In roguelike development news, I for some work done on the new Entity/Component/Actions system I’m going to be using for BotLG.
So far I’m really pleased with it. Soon I’ll begin putting it into the BotLG codebase and converting the existing game verbs over. It’s so much cleaner and easier to expand than the current entity/NPC system.
