Microsoft Releases a Security Advisory for Microsoft Digital Certificates

Original release date: July 12, 2012 | Last revised: October 23, 2012

Microsoft has released security advisory 2728973 to replace a number of certificates that did not meet Microsoft's high standard of Public-Key Infrastructure (PKI) management. This update places the intermediate certificate authority (CA) certificates in the Untrusted Certificate Store and replaces them with new certificates that meet Microsoft's PKI standards.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review Microsoft Security Advisory 2728973 and take any necessary action to help mitigate this risk.
