This article may be a bit old as Chrome and Firefox are planning to remove all trust fromall Symantec TLS certificates, but PCWorld says that "After the latest incident of improper certificate issuance, Google says that it has lost confidence in the world's largest certificate authority [, Symantec]". This distrust is already live in Chrome Dev 70. This has affected me as a buyer and a seller, as I cannot access PayPal and eBay is indicated as not secure site.
eBay, PayPal, and 1/3 of the internet will have to get a new TLS certificate, ether use Chrome less than 70, Firefox less than 60, or another browser.
So basically, Google have taken it upon themselves to halt access due to their own loss in confidence in Symantec, but haven't offered an alternative other than using a competing service such as IE which in turn has the worst security of all web browsers...
