Not surprising....

Don't expect any "privacy" on the net once you plug that modem in...

Yea, yea, yea, there are people that claim things are "secure". But when you have military computers that are flat out not allowed connection to any network...... yep...

A reply in kind to stuxnet perhaps (if the Iranian Govt. is confirmed to be involved, although at this moment it seems to be a rumor)?

This is domestic spying... How is it related in any way shape or form to stuxnet is beyond me. It was used by an Iranian ISP, so its pretty obvious who is behind this.

I guess its something with toms just run a search on support.mozilla.com

to test if your browser is safe from this certificate go to:

https://www.diginotar.com/Products/ExtendedValidationSSL/tabid/622/Default.aspx

so far for me chrome and firefox are safe but for IE9 its not and it does not allow me to remove the certificate manually.

Sorry tried again and not getting the Viglink redirect in Firefox but picked it up on IE9, so maybe its Internet Explorer misbehaving, sorry for the inconvenience.

You are absolutely right, I know a couple of people who work in Defense. Their computers are not connected to the Internet. They also can't take camera phones or flash drives into work.
