Updated LinkedIn's country subdomain SSL certificate has expired – apparently as of about noon GMT today.

According to the sslscan certificate testing tool, us.linkedin.com and all its altnames were no longer valid at the time of publication.

The certificate issuer is DigiCert SHA2 Secure Server CA.
