Validate Server Certificate recommendation

I understand that it is probably recommended from a security standpoint to ensure "validate server certificate" is checked on each client and that either a self-signed or Trusted CA (Verisign) certificate be employed.

Can someone give me an example of security risks when validation is not enabled?

Re: Validate Server Certificate recommendation

You're vulnerable to man-in-the middle attacks as your clients aren't validating that the server is who it says it is.
