Windows Out-Of-Band Security Patch Fixes Rogue Certificates

It's beginning to dawn on me that "Security Certificate" apparently does not mean what I thought it meant - a certification that the software attached to that certificate is secure and trustworthy. Silly me. Not bashing Microsoft on this one - they actually acted pretty quickly. It's a much larger problem than that; there have been several big screw-ups lately, with Certificate Authorities being compromised and worse-than-worthless certificates flying around all over the place.
