More falsely issued certs

 More certs have been falsely issued as being reported by Sophos computer security blog Naked Security. However this time the falsely issued certs are from a major online site, yes they were Google SSL certs. The sad thing was is that these certs were issues July 10th, and as many of you should know July 10th was a pretty long time ago and these fake certs have been out in the while for a while.

 Now would be a good time to set your browser to check for revoked certs to help stay safe from attacks like this. What does this mean for the Cert systems? If this keeps happening it may mean its time for some changes with how certs are done.
