We just learned this morning that GoDaddy was forced to revoke website's SSL certificates as the result of an undetermined software glitch in its system.

We got the information from various readers affected by the issue who forwarded notification emails to GoDaddy.

``Due to a software issue, the recently issued certificate for your domain was issued without proper domain validation, and in accordance with industry standards as a Certificate Authority, we will need to revoke your certificate as a precautionary measure. The certificate will be revoked today (January 10) by 9 PM PST. The software bug that created the issue has since been remedied. We continue to closely monitor our systems,`` a GoDaddy statement said.

Some of the affected websites might still work and continue to resolve, even though the SSL certificate is revoked.

But visitors to your site may see error messages or various warning notices in their browser until a new and valid certificate is installed.

GoDaddy, which is issuing these replacement certificates free of charge, apologised to its users for the mishap caused by the glitch in its notification email.

We asked GoDaddy about how many organizations were affected by this SSL problem as well as more details on its cause. We didn't get any reply yet as of today.
