It seems there's always a new computer threat to watch out for, and the most recent breach in the news is really scary. Dutch Certificate Authority (CA), DigiNotar, was recently hacked and the result is that fake SSL security certificates were issued. This is the Internet equivalent of impersonating a police officer. We're all taught to be careful on the web and a look for an https (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) connection so we know we're safe when transmitting data. But when the certificate itself is fake, we can easily be fooled.
