DigiNotar Hacked Out Of Business

Doomed certificate authority files for bankruptcy, and industry looks for answers on preventing more CA hacks

Monday, September 12, 2011


 Saw one of these in use last week. Not sure I could do a virtual keyboard all the time, but it was pretty sweet. (even if it was Windoze).

Best section and what the GOP doesn't get.

Yes, we are rugged individualists.  Yes, we are strong and self-reliant.  And it has been the drive and initiative of our workers and entrepreneurs that has made this economy the engine and envy of the world. 
But there has always been another thread running throughout our history – a belief that we are all connected; and that there are some things we can only do together, as a nation.

This is awesome!

Aw crap...

 The fallout from the recent breach of certificate authority (CA) DigiNotar continues at a rapid pace as more details about the scope of the attack come to light: More than 500 rogue digital certificates were created for such high-profile domains as,, Microsoft's, and, as well as one posing as VeriSign Root CA. In addition, more than 300,000 IP addresses, mostly in Iran, have been compromised.

The plot further thickened today when the hacker who breached certificate authority Comodo earlier this year claimed he was also behind the DigiNotar attack, and has hacked four more CAs, including GlobalSign and StartCom: "I told all that I can do it again, I told all in interviews that I still have accesses in Comodo resellers, I told all I have access to most of CAs," wrote the hacker, who goes by the alias "ComodoHacker" and claims to be Iranian. He indicated that the attacks were in retaliation for the 16-year anniversary of a massacre of thousands of Muslims during the Bosnian War in the town of Srebrenica.

He says he has 300 code-signing certs, including code-signing privileges with Google's certificate. "I'm able to issue windows update, Microsoft's statement about Windows Update and that I can't issue such update is totally false! I already reversed ENTIRE windows update protocol" he wrote today.

Amazon Android tablet with no hint of Google?

 Interesting article.  I was just talking with a colleague about his disappointment with a Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet. His issues were all based around the in-availability of good, easy to access content and trustworthy apps. He liked the device itself and the interface.  Maybe Amazon has a good idea here.

Amazon's Android tablet to be media-focused, cheap and wiped free of any hints of Google?

Over the weekend, TechCrunch reported it got its hands on Amazon's 7-inch (likely Kindle-branded) tablet, which among other highlights is (sort of) Android-based and about half the price of today's cheapest iPad. With HP's fire-sale TouchPad's moving like wildfire at $99 (CP: iPad Who? $99 HP TouchPad selling like gangbusters), customers seem primed for cheap tablets. And by the way, the initial version of the Amazon tablet will have wi-fi but won't have 3G/4G data service – apparently not even the "whispernet" mobile data service that lets Kindle users download books on the go.

Amazon's move into tablets is important for a number of reasons. It has the scale and distribution to slash tablet prices, which it seems intent on doing. And it has digital apps, book, movie and music stores that are a great fit for a tablet (and compete directly with Apple's iTunes) – not to mention its core e-commerce shopping site which could get a nice boost too (and it is apparently planning to give tablet buyers a free upgrade to its Amazon Prime free shipping service).

30 years in prison for a tweet? 2 Mexicans deny terrorism, face 30 years for tweet

2 Mexicans deny terrorism, face 30 years for tweet

Published: Sep 4, 2011 2:44 PM

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Think before you tweet.

A former teacher turned radio commentator and a math tutor who lives with his mother sit in a prison in southern Mexico, facing possible 30-year sentences for terrorism and sabotage in what may be the most serious charges ever brought against anyone using a Twitter social network account.

Prosecutors say the defendants helped cause a chaos of car crashes and panic as parents in the Gulf Coast city of Veracruz rushed to save their children because of false reports that gunmen were attacking schools.

Love this: Alaska woman punches bear in snout to save dog

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Juneau, Alaska, woman says she knows it was stupid to punch a black bear in the snout to save her dog.

But Brooke Collins says the attack happened so fast that all she could think about is keeping her dachshund, Fudge, from being killed.
