අපි අන්තර්ජාලයේ අනතුරු ගැන කතා කරද්දී හැම විටම එය දැනුවත් කමින් වන අපහසුතා වන්නේ නැත. දිනපතා නොයෙකුත් කටයුතු සඳහා අන්තර්ජාල පහසුකම් මත යැපෙන අපි මෙය ගැන දැනුවත් විය යුතුයි.

මේවා සූක්ෂම ලෙස පරිශීලකයා රැවටෙන අන්දමින් සකසා ඇත. නොදැනවුවත්කමින් හෝ වැරදීමකින් link මත click කිරීමෙන් බොහෝ විට අහිතකර / භයානක programs execute වෙන්න ප්‍රවනතාවයක් ඇත.

අපි භාවිතා කරන applications j, පුධාන updates දෙකක් තිබෙනවා.

·         Features - විශේෂාංග
·         Security - ආරක්ෂාව

මෙහිදී ආරක්ෂාව පිණිස තිබෙන updates (යාවත්කාලීන කිරීම) apply නොකිරීමෙන් බොහෝ විට මෙම අහිතකර programs වලට තම කාර්යය කිරීමට පුළුවන් වෙනවා.

බොහෝ විට වෙබ් අඩවි black list වී මෙම අන්දමින් warnings පෙන්වේ. ඒවා සැලකිල්ලට නොගෙන ඉදිරියට යාමෙන් මෙවැනි අපහසුතා වලට ලක් වේ.


  • ·         නිතර security updates apply කරන්න
  • ·         සැක සහිත link මත click කිරීමෙන් වලකින්න.
  • ·         යාළුවකු වුවද එවන link මත click කිරීමට පෙර දෙවතාවක් සිතන්න.

SSL Certificates


Final Warning to Replace Symantec SSL certificates

This is the last few weeks for website owners using Symantec SSL certificates issued before December 1, 2017 to replace their certificate. Failing to do so will result in your website will get  with saying “Certificate not trust”.

As per Digicert announcement, near the end of July 2017, Google Chrome created a plan to first reduce and then remove trust (by showing security warnings in the browser) for all Symantec-, Thawte-, GeoTrust-, and RapidSSL-issued SSL/TLS certificates. The plan includes changes that were rolled out starting with Chrome version 66 and continues with version 70.
You must replace your affected certificates to provide an optimal user experience for all TLS/SSL applications, including browsers.

New Chain of Trust

DigiCert took over validation and issuance for all Symantec Website Security SSL/TLS certificates on December 1, 2017. This includes certificates for Symantec and its subsidiary CAs: Thawte, GeoTrust, and RapidSSL. Going forward, all new and reissued Website Security certificates are issued by DigiCert (using one of our trusted roots) and are trusted by Google Chrome.
The new certificate chain DigiCert created does not interfere with your current certificate trust among browsers. The chain also establishes trust for your replacement certificate with Google Chrome (and other browsers) going forward.
