Pirate Bay’s SSL Certificate is Revoked

Yesterday The Pirate Bay moved to a new domain, Thepiratebay.is.

A few hours after the switch TPB’s SSL certificate was revoked, showing an ominous red warning screen to those who browse the site over https.

“Secure Connection Failed. An error occurred during a connection to thepiratebay.is. Peer’s Certificate has been revoked.”

Some wondered whether this could be a new tactic by the entertainment industry to target the BitTorrent site, but reality is less exciting.

The Pirate Bay team told TorrentFreak that it’s merely an administrative issue which should be resolved soon.
