So, I fired up CSI 6.0 this morning, and it wouldn't open. It gave me the message: "An error occurred while verifying the security certificate. The Secunia CSI cannot continue execution."
Any idea what may be causing this? It was working fine yesterday, and I haven't changed anything.

An alternative to the solution kindly referred to you by the user 'ddmarshal', there are two other methods that could help you go through this issue to start the Secunia CSI. You could:
a) Disable the IE setting 'Check for Publisher's Certificate Revocation' under IE Options > Advanced > Security section. The problem with this workaround is that it will disable the CRL functionality of the IE browser for all applications which is a wrong approach towards achieving security.
b) Whitelist 'http://crl.verisign.net' and 'http://crl.thawte.com' at your Firewall / Proxy server to allow hosts to connect to those two sites seamlessly. This may simplify the CRL process and may help your IEs verify Secunia CSI's certificates faster than the original limitation of 15 seconds.
Should you use the first workaround pointed out in comment #2, note that this configuration change would make your browsers time out after 30-40 seconds and not as by default after 15 seconds.
