Symptoms

If you are using Verisign EV 2048-bit SSL Web Server certificates, some older browsers might give a "Certificate Authority Not Trusted" warning after you upgrade from an earlier version of Web Server 7.0 to Web Server 7.0 Update 8 or later (also for 6.1SP12 or later).

The other possible symptom is a SSL web server to backend server communication suddenly fails after a new installation of the Verisign EV 2048-bit SSL Web Server certificate.
