Firefox 6.0.1 fixed Mozilla Foundation Security Advisory 2011-34, which simply pulled everything to do with DigiNotar from its list of trusted certificates.

Let's see whether this fiasco causes the Dutch authorities to reconsider modern public service buzzwords such as "cloud" and "outsourcing"!
DigiNotar is the former Certificate Authority - or so-called "authority" - which managed to issue more than 500 bogus digital certificates in the name of major web properties such as Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google; in the name of intelligence agencies such as the Mossad and the CIA; and even, it seems, in the name of other certifying authorities.
