Help! Virgin Media FORGETS to renew its security certificate on contact page

Cable firm caught in embarassing balls-up

Virgin Media has failed to renew its security certificate on the company's 'Contact us' page of its website.

It is currently displaying an "untrusted connection" warning about the url.

Customers who attempt to contact the Liberty Global-owned cable firm are greeted with the confusing alert that suggests communications via the site are not secure.

It's not clear when the certificate first expired. A Reg reader flagged it up to Vulture Weekend in the early hours of this morning.
