Recently there was a zero day exploit that compromised several Microsoft code signing certificates. As a response Microsoft seems to have gone in an performed a review of other certs and is invalidating the ones that may be vulnerable.

This looks to me like responsible security minded management.

Over the last month or so, I've been fixing computers for family and I've had to deal with Microsoft and their customer service on several occasions. I'd never thought i'd say this, but every interaction I've had with the company has been positive. It's nice to see even more good news.

We are placing these certificates in the Untrusted Certificate Store, and replacing them with new certificate authorities that meet our high standard of public-key infrastructure (PKI) management. We are unaware of any misuse of the certificate authorities, but are taking pre-emptive action to protect customers.

Sounds good to me.

Microsoft has always done well with customer service in my experience the only issue I have ever had with them was getting in touch with them. Once I reach a person i'm generally happy. hell even 1-800-4m- xbox has been good to me.

Tier 1 tech support for xbox:

Me: "I live in college housing so I'm not supposed to use a router and my high speed internet is down which means my Xbox can't resolve an IP. I'm trying to set up a media center connection and it keeps failing. Does my xbox need to resolve an IP to use media center?"

Them: "yes."

Me:"OK can I use my hub to connect the xbox to my PC directly then?"

Them: "Yeah that will work."

Yeah I know that it wasn't a very complicated question but it was more complicated than I expected their tier one guys to know in less that 30 seconds.
