The September 9, 2011 issue of the Trend Micro newsletter is of interest because it talks about certificates and how they work with authorities. It recaps what has happened with one such authority. Take a read of this.

This is quite interesting. I’ve never used any of these services, and I’m interested to hear if anyone here has. Check out this article to see how the company behind this one site cooperated with law enforcement to turn someone in. I would hope that companies such as this would do the right thing like they did.

In a continuing effort to help you maximize your budget, GW Micro has created an additional method for you to purchase Software Maintenance Agreements (SMAs).
Our current SMA provides the next three major upgrades of Window-Eyes. We recognize that budgets are tight for many government agencies as well as individuals, and we are doing our part to help you keep some of that hard earned cash in your pocket.
GW Micro is pleased to announce the new 2-count SMA. This SMA will provide the next two major upgrades to Window-Eyes for a much lower cost.
If you want a 3-count SMA, you can continue to purchase it for the same price you currently pay.
In addition to the 2-count SMA option, we are also pleased to announce an SMA Time Plan. It will start at a low cost for a 2-year plan and additional years may be purchased. All upgrades, major or minor will be provided at no additional charge during the “Time” period. If you renew before the time expires you can buy one additional year or multiple years – it’s your choice. If the time expires and you want to begin again, you must start over at the 2-year level. Of course, if the time expires and a major upgrade is released then you pay the regular price of that upgrade before you may buy the SMA Time Plan. Remember that with all SMAs, you must be at the latest version prior to purchasing an SMA.
For pricing information for customers located within the U.S., please refer to www.gwmicro.com/catalog, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or feel free to contact GW Micro at 260-489-3671. For customers outside of the U.S., please contact your local dealer for pricing information. You can find your local dealer at www.gwmicro.com/dealers.
Get your SMA or SMA Time plan before it’s too late!

This has been talked about on Security now! for the last few weeks. I think Steve should have a copy of this, so I’m sending it to him through twitter. Its too bad that this company has been found to be untrustworthy. There will be others, and they will be found over time. Digital Security certificates is a serious business, and if you screw up, you’ll end up paying. The security companies should thank the government for doing the right investigation, and ultimately the right thing. Check this article out. Leave your comments.

After getting a call from an interesting skype name, and following its link last night, Trend Micro blocked a portion of the page. Enquiring about this to Trend Micro and F-secure, F-secure send me a link to this story about skype. So now, we need to be worried about calls saying we’re infected. I knew I wasn’t but was curious on what this site was about. Since I knew I wasn’t infected, I would not be putting my payment details in such sites without running my own antivirus software. Take a look at this article.
