Webmail session resets and certificate warnings

Hi
Today I just got a string of session expiry/reset warnings when in webmail. I coud only be logged in for maybe 10 secs before I got kicked out. Shortly afterwards I recieved https/SSL certificate change warnings (I'm using Firefox with the Certificate Patrol add-on) for multiple .plus.net domains (e.g. webmail.plus.net) that said the new certificate was signed by GoDaddy.com.
Question is: is this correct? can either plusnet themselves or anybody else here concur that the plus.net service certificates are signed by GoDaddy? Just want to know if I've been hacked.
Thanks
Pete

Re: Webmail session resets and certificate warnings

My system shows the certificates are signed by godaddy,  and I've not seen any issues with certificate warnings.
I did notice that the certificates were issued a month ago  (2012-07-09)..

Re: Webmail session resets and certificate warnings

Firefox and Chrome show no problems with the SSL certificates for me. Go Daddy are an authorised certificate issuing authority.
Plusnet posted a Service Status Notice on 18th July 2012 that their website server SSL certificates were being updated.
