Inadvertently Disclosed Digital Certificate Could Allow Spoofing

Microsoft Security Advisory 3123040

Microsoft is aware of an SSL/TLS digital certificate for *.xboxlive.com for which the private keys were inadvertently disclosed. The certificate could be used in attempts to perform man-in-the-middle attacks. It cannot be used to issue other certificates, impersonate other domains, or sign code. This issue affects all supported releases of Microsoft Windows. Microsoft is not currently aware of attacks related to this issue.
To help protect customers from potentially fraudulent use of the SSL/TLS digital certificate, the certificate has been deemed no longer valid and Microsoft is updating the Certificate Trust list (CTL) for all supported releases of Microsoft Windows to remove the trust of the certificate. For more information about the certificate, see the FAQ section of this advisory.

Recommendations An automatic updater of certificate trust lists is included in supported editions of Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows RT, Windows RT 8.1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 10, and Windows 10 Version 1511, and for devices running Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows 10 Mobile. For these operating systems and devices, customers do not need to take any action as these systems and devices will be automatically protected.
For systems running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, or Windows Server 2008 R2 that are using the automatic updater of certificate trust lists (see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2677070 for details), customers do not need to take any action as these systems will be automatically protected.

Summary - Microsoft leaked a website security certificate that could open up Xbox Live users to impersonation attacks from hackers trying to gain access to the users user name and password. This in turn could lead to future attacks and possible financial threats.

Good call. If you have Windows 7, you need to manually update to prevent this from hurting you.
