Globalsign Stops Secure Certificates After Hack Claim

Recommended Posts


Belgian security firm GlobalSign has temporarily stopped issuing authentication certificates for secure websites.

It comes after an anonymous hacker claimed to have gained access to the company's servers.

If confirmed, it would be the second security breach at a European certificate authority in two months.

Hundreds of bogus DigiNotar authentications were issued following an intrusion into its systems.

Certificate authorities (CAs) are companies or public bodies whose job is to confirm that secure websites are genuine.

Nothing is secure.
