Security upgrade, Monday, July 20, 2015
14 Jul 2015   

Summary
We will be updating our security certificates on Monday, July 20th, 2015. Volunteers using older versions of the software may need to upgrade.

World Community Grid will be upgrading our SSL (security) certificates on Monday, July 20th, 2015. The majority of our volunteers will not be impacted by this change.

SSL certificates are used to encrypt communications between your web browser and our servers, and between the software client and our servers. SSL certificates must be renewed periodically and we are therefore updating our current certificates.

Certain older versions of BOINC or World Community Grid software will not be compatible with our new certificates. After we upgrade the certificates, volunteers using older versions of the software may not be able upload, download, request or report research work. To ensure that you will not be impacted, please upgrade to the latest version of the software.

If you need assistance, please post in the BOINC Agent Support forum.
