Ideas from that:
There is no automated process to revoke fraudulent certificates.
There is no public list of certificates that companies have issued, or even which of its resellers or partners have been given a duplicate set of the master keys.
There are no mechanisms to prevent fraudulent certificates from being issued by compromised companies, or repressive regimes bent on surveillance, some of which have their own certificate authorities.

Because it concerns Comodo and it's his discovered link not mine.
I think Tech can answer for himself.  ;)

Most of the links are posted there before than here.
I'm just posting there IF it was not posted before.
