Such a site is now online: https://liberty.lavabit.com/ (currently it only offers to change your password)
The page says:
Due to concerns about the continued integrity of customers’ passwords, we are offering a short window of five days in which users can change their password before we allow anyone to download an archive of their stored emails. The download functionality will be available starting Friday, October 18th at 7pm CT.
Since the SSL certificates formerly used to protect access to Lavabit have been compromised, we recommend manually validating the serial number and fingerprint your computer received before using this website.
Now I wonder: Can this site be trusted?
What is the reason for allowing password changes only for five days in this context?
Does it make sense to check this Serial and Fingerprint, as they are printed on the same webpage the cert is used on?
Is there a way to make sure that this new site resp. the SSL certificate is not under control of the FBI?
