Re: Fearmongering, Uncertainty and Doubt

They do it where I work, a complete MITM attack on almost all web sites (they did leave out some banking sites). The "official" browser is IE, and our intrepid IT department installed a bogus certificate in the Windows certificate store to keep IE quiet about it, and also Chrome, because it uses the Windows certificate store.

Fortunately, I use Firefox, which has its own store that hadn't been tampered with, so I was warned immediately. I deleted private accounts I had at work (mainly IMAP email) off my work computer and changed all the passwords.
