Brian Krebs reported today that security firm Bit9 has suffered a breach. Apparently the bad guys got access to Bit9′s code signing certificates. This is bad for many reasons. I’m guessing that this code signing certificate is signed by a trusted CA. This would mean that malware signed with it would “appear” legitimate. What’s worse is that according to reports the Bit9 software will automatically trust anything signed by the Bit9 certificate.
Ruh Roh Shaggy. This should make the RSA Conference experience very interesting for Bit9.
