Privacy, Security, Encryption The number of rogue SSL certificates issued by Dutch CA DigiNotar has balooned from one to a couple dozen to over 250 to 531 in just a few days. As Jacob Appelbaum of the Tor project shared the full list of the rogue certificates, it became clear that fraudulent certificates for domains of a number of intelligence agencies from around the world were also issued during the CA's compromise - including the CIA, MI6 and Mossad. Additional targeted domains include Facebook, Yahoo!, Microsoft, Skype, Twitter, Tor, Wordpress and many others.

Never leave anything related to information technology to us Dutch. We WILL fcuk it up. Over the past decade, every IT-related government project has failed. Every. Single. One. It's a major problem in The Netherlands.

As a Brit, I relate painfully to your sentiment - the question isn't "Where it is it bad?" but rather "Which country, if any, gets it right?"
