Their SSL has been screwed for aaages. Super ironic, since they sell SSL certificates via trustcentre.co.za and even that SSL isn't properly installed/issued. What a balls up.

But lets make them responsible for billions in social grants. What could go wrong?

Agree, this has been going on a long time already.

Issuer: SAPO SSL CA

The certificates are issued by the SA Post Office’s Trust Centre, which is accredited by the South African Accreditation Authority, in terms of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act.

So government thought it could pass a law in SA that forces "the Internet" to trust SAPO as its own CA?

Well there's the problem.

Is this the same SAAA that had a DHL phish sitting on their servers for so many months, not seeing the obvious, ignoring alerts? :sick:
