Verisign: Documenting the Damage


Link: Consequences of Putting Wildcards in .NET and .COM.

Why are so many people pissed that Verisign broke the DNS? The initial anger was that a fundamental assumption of Internet operations was violated. How that manifests itself takes time to show. The linked page documents the wide swarth of damage Verisign has caused. And the list is still growing. I saw a mailing list message earlier today that dicussed the problems Verisign created for some applications that use SOAP.
