Dutch government revokes Diginotar certificates

An anonymous reader writes "(original Dutch text: http://nos.nl/artikel/269586-veiligheid-overheidssites-niet-gegarandeerd.html)

After previously claiming that the Iranian hack of CA Diginotar did not compromise certificates of the Dutch government, it has now been decided that there is too much risk and the certificates will have to be revoked after all. Since the Dutch government has been using only Diginotar-supplied certificates this will leave all government websites with invalid certificates while a new supplier is being searched for. The minister of internal affairs recommends people not to use the websites if a warning about an invalid certificate appears."
