The SberBank team began posting warnings to its users on the payment pages of various online stores and services, including Svyaznoy, Online Trade.ru, Delimobil, Detsky Mir, Leroy Merlin, and many others.
The situation drew the attention of the publication “Kommersant”. As warned in Sberbank, users may encounter problems in payment. The fact is that these services use Sberbank’s online acquiring for payment. Due to sanctions, foreign centers have stopped issuing certificates to Sberbank for secure HTTPS connections, and the bank’s current valid GlobalSign certificate expires on February 15, 2023.
To avoid problems, you will need to install Russian encryption certificates yourself. Sberbank explains that “certificates from the Ministry of Digital Development will soon be required for stable operation”, for this it is proposed to install Russian browsers (“Yandex Browser” or Atom from VK) that already have built-in certificates, or manually install certificates from the server “Gosuslug» to your smartphone or PC.
