I was reading this article about the fraudulent certificates from Comodo back in 2011. It talks about domain impersonation.
I understand that a fake website could be secured with the fraudulent certificates but wouldn't the domain still be a fake one and a dead giveaway? Is this kind of attack related with DNS in any way?
Also, the author says "one cert was for "global trustee" — not a domain name. That was probably a malicious CA certificate that could be used to flawlessly impersonate any domain on the Web." What the hell is a global trustee?
