A team of security researchers and academics has broken a core piece
of Internet technology. They made their work public at the 25th Chaos
Communication Congress in Berlin today. The team was able to create a
rogue certificate authority and use it to issue valid SSL certificates
for any site they want. The user would have no indication that their
HTTPS connection was being monitored/modified.
