Submission + - PKI vulnerability leads to rougue CA certificate

mrowton writes: "A recent proff of concept presented at the 25th Annual Chaos Communication Congress (CCC) outlines a dramatic new vulnerability with PKI. From the paper, "As a result of this successful attack, we are currently in possession of a rogue Certification Authority certificate. This certificate will be accepted as valid and trusted by all common browsers, because it appears to be signed by one of the root CAs that browsers trust by default. In turn, any website certificate signed by our rogue CA will be trusted as well.""
