Fake Certificates Compromise Google Accounts of 300K Iranians

 A recent hack of digital certificates issued by DigiNotar possibly compromised the Gmail accounts of approximately 300,000 Iranians, according to a Tuesday report.

These certificates are used to designate legitimate Web traffic. This breach, however, allowed the hackers to spoof legitimate Google sites and access peoples' personal data once they signed in.

Moh: Might be a good idea to change your Google password.
