  1. Looks to be just straight down, rather than a bad cert.

    $ telnet -z ssl -z verbose ibank.barclays.co.uk 443

  2. Isn't that the same as visiting any of the CACert sites hosted by A&A though? No random CACert installed == Bad SSL warning.

  3. It is working today, but slightly amusing that clicking on the "Security" link from on-line banking went to a page not found.

  4. I've seen it on several occasions where santander's logout link tries to send you to a page within their staging environment.

    Shows how well they test their site after making it live!
