That part is ambiguous at the moment since Verisign has not released

the SSL acquired network is not compromised. Sounds like lots of
assumptions being drawn.

VeriSign said its executives "do not believe these attacks breached the

"Oh my God," said Stewart Baker, former assistant secretary of the
Department of Homeland Security and before that the top lawyer at the
National Security Agency. "That could allow people to imitate almost any
company on the Net."
