Dutch Digital Cert Fix Fixed

Recently I told you about a Dutch digital cert player that allowed itself to be hacked, resulting in a flood of bogus, useless certs.

Well, Microsoft remedied the problem with a DLL update -- at least it thought it had. Turns out the fix didn't block all the bogus certs, so a fix for the fix has now shipped.

The problem really just impacts older software such as XP and Windows Server 2003. Anything later than that should be fine, but I'd check just in case.
