VeriSign Was Repeatedly Hit by Hackers in 2010

No one believes any statement you make two years after the fact. Stating that company execs "do not believe" the attacks breached servers with critical information tells us they simply have no clue as to the extent of the damage.

Sincerely, The General Public

"Oh my God," said Stewart Baker, former assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and before that the top lawyer at the National Security Agency. "That could allow people to imitate almost any company on the Net." The VeriSign attacks were revealed in a quarterly U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing in October that followed new guidelines on reporting security breaches to investors.
