    Google has given Symantec an offer it can't refuse: give a thorough accounting of its ailing certificate authority process or risk having the world's most popular browser

    The ultimatum, made in a blog post published Wednesday afternoon, came five weeks after Symantec fired an undisclosed number of employees caught issuing unauthorized transport layer security certificates. The mis-issued certificates made it possible for the holders to impersonate HTTPS-protected Google webpages.
