The giant search engineGoogle Chrome 70 is expected to be released on 16 October when the browser will start blocking most of the sites that run Symantec certificates issued before June 2016, including VeriSign, RapidSSL, Legacy branded certificates.
Notwithstanding more than a year to prepare, many popular Websites are not ready.
In a report, 1139 sites in the top one million sites ranked by Alexa, including the Federal Bank Of India, Citrus, SSRN, Pantone, the Tel Aviv city government, and Penn State Federal are few names found by Scott Helme, a security researcher.
Ferrari is in the list but recently switched to new Certificate Authority Provider, escaping any future interruptions.

Before Symantec was accusing of issuing the wrong certificates, it was one of the leading certificate providers, but after publishing false certificate, google quits on its certificate Authority.
Google Recent Headline For Chrome 69
Removing out ‘www’ from URL provides a false attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and money), often for spiteful reasons, For example, A-Fraud Banking site seems way similar to the real Website, without the ‘www’ subdomain.
