Playstation Hack SSL

<nerd talk>

Hackers at CCC pwned SSL certificate security, and they did it using phat stacks of SONY PlayStation 3 boxes – DAS RIGHT, A FRIGGING BEOWULF CLUSTER OF PLAYSTATION 3s! Just to make it clear, they didn’t just create a phony SSL cert, they were able to create a trusted but phony authority root cert which can be used to sign other certs. OMFGZ the pwnage!
