(2011-09-06) Dutch Root Certificate Authority Being Marked As Untrusted By Microsoft

Posted by Jorge on 2011-09-06


As you may know, a Dutch root certificate authority was hacked a week or so ago. Because of that, it’s root certificate should be marked as untrusted to make sure every issued certificate by that cert authority becomes untrusted to prevent spoofing. Today, Microsoft released an updated fix which marks the root certificate as untrusted. This can see below. More information here.

By targeting “MS-KBQ2607712_Microsoft Security Advisory: Fraudulent digital certificates could allow spoofing” you can download the fix manually for every Windows version still supported (WXP and higher). You can also get the fix through Windows Update.

Make sure to install the hotfix to prevent spoofing!

Cheers,
Jorge
