Microsoft Security Advisory (2607712)
Fraudulent Digital Certificates Could Allow Spoofing
Published: August 29, 2011 | Updated: August 29, 2011

Microsoft is aware of at least one fraudulent digital certificate issued by DigiNotar, a certification authority present in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities Store, on all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. Although this is not a vulnerability in a Microsoft product, Microsoft is taking action to protect customers.

Users of Firefox should apply the update released by Mozilla today. It revokes the DigiNotar root CA certificate so that any SSL certificate issued by DigiNotar will be rejected.
