Hackers create rougue CA certificate using MD5 collisions

I Love the way they have hacked it. A group of hackers/researches have found success in forging digital certificates trusted by ‘modern’ web browsers using a cluster of PS3 game consoles! wow!!

The research also shows a significant weakness in the MD5 algorithm currently used by 6 CAs to issue certificates.

This also means that they have managed to break the secure ‘SSL’.

I loved it. Follow the link.
