    (Microsoft) - Microsoft Security Advisory (2718704) Unauthorized Digital Certificates Could Allow SpoofingThe Microsoft update was triggered by the discovery that Flame, a sophisticated, nation state-grade cyber espionage tool, had subverted WU to infect additional PCs within an already-penetrated network.
