We've started to see an intermittent SSL error using the Yahoo contacts API. It seems to indicate that something on Yahoo's end has a bad SSL cert.

SSLHandshakeError: [Errno 1] _ssl.c:504: :SSL :certificate verify failed
We're using the python YQL library (version 0.7.7) and otherwise our system has been stable with no changes happening to it for months, until last week we started getting this SSL issue.
We're unable to reproduce this consistently in development or production, hence our suspicion that a particular Yahoo endpoint has an issue. Does anyone have any ideas?
We also have problems getting Yahoo contacts for more than a week now.
Did not find an relevant information about what is going on.
Within our application we receive an exception while handling OAuth1 callback (404 Not Found). Redirecting to yahoo connection status page.
Do someone know something about this topic or if it's an special thread opened for it ?
@Carmen - perhaps this is related to your issue: http://yahoodevelopers.tumblr.com/post/75633763287/yahoo-contacts-and-profile-apis-move-to-https
