Recently, the Certificate Authority/Browser Forum sent a notification to Certificate Authorities as a reminder, asking that they discontinue supporting SHA-1 SSL certificates for both SSL and code signing. If you currently have a SHA-1 certificate(s), either in production or in a testing environment, it is important that you replace it before December 31, 2015 with SHA-256/TLS certificates as soon as possible, as there are associated risks to site performance and your site could become compromised.
