comment Can you tell if your computer was hacked and pictures stolen from 2-6 months ago?
You have posted two questions, almost about the same subject. If I understand correctly, you had some pictures, told someone that you have deleted them, but somehow one (or more) pictures have spread, and know you need to convince someone that you're not guilty, because you deleted them and perhaps your computer was invaded, and someone might have stolen the pictures. Is that it ?

comment Why do we not trust an SSL certificate that expired recently?
@zigg: yep, I totally agree with that. The point of the question, comment, answer, etc, is that when a certificate is expired, it doesn't make sense to keep using it, as if it had a shelf-life. That doesn't mean that all certificates should be trusted with closed-eyes just because they haven't expired yet.

comment Why do we not trust an SSL certificate that expired recently?
@zigg: I'm not sure I understood your point. Your talking about this security advisory? That 512 bits RSA certificates, although not expired, weren't accepted anymore, because Microsoft decided so? That's ok, MS can decide what to accept or not, and her users decide whether to apply the update or not. The issuer, also, can declare that under some circumstances, the certificate is revoked, before it's expired...

Shelf-life is the name... and SSL certificates don't have a shelf-life

+1 The so-called "trusted computing" does not fix this; it just changes who the villains are
