Updates for blog and bugs

We just updated some of our servers to the latest updates:

https://blog.cacert.org/ to the latest WordPress-release.

https://bugs.cacert.org/ to the latest mantis-release.

Furthermore the client certificate login on https://bugs.cacert.org was activated by today for Class-3 certificates. To login you have to enter your username or email-adress of your mantis-account.

Trying to login to https://bugs.cacert.org/ using an unknown email-adress will NOT create a new account: You have to create an account first using the email-adress, which is listed in your client certificate. If you already have an account at https://bugs.cacert.org/ you may change the email-adress of your account to the first email-adress in your client-certificate.

If the certificate-authentication fails (no matter, if you use no client certificate, an expired one or a certificate, which does not match your email-adress) you can use the normal “classic” username/password-credentials to login.

If you try to use a Class-1-client certificate, you currently will may probably receive an error-message like “ERR_BAD_SSL_CLIENT_AUTH_CERT”. In this case please login without a client certificate or create a Class-3-certificate.

In case you face any issues don’t hesitate to contact us for help.
