    The Dutch company that issued a rogue digital certificate for all Google Internet domains said today that its network had been hacked last month. DigiNotar, a Dutch certificate authority (CA) that was acquired earlier this year by Chicago-based Vasco, said it was unaware of the breach for more than a week and had overlooked the in-the-wild Google certificate for over a month.

    Multiple SSL (secure socket layer) certificates were stolen in the July hack, said DigiNotar.
