Observe, the eDellRoot certificate is a trusted root that expires in 2039 and is intended for "All" purposes. Notice that this is more powerful than the clearly legitimate DigiCert certificate just above it, which spikes more curiosity.
It's unclear why nobody at Dell saw this as a potential problem, especially since Dell's competitor Lenovo suffered a very similar security nightmare earlier this year when it shipped an online ad tracking component called Superfish with all new computers.
Edit/Addendum: Dude, You Got Dellâd: Publishing Your Privates:
In the wild, we discovered a SCADA system associated with the water treatment facilities of a city in Kentucky using the eDellRoot certificate for HTTPS.
And it turns out the Bluetooth drivers shipped with their own signing certificate!

My mom brought a couple of snack-ish things on her last trip, including a few of the Epic Bar offerings. Bison bacon cranberry: meh. Chicken sriracha: Pretty good.

New documents obtained by Charlie Savage of the New York Times (as the result of a FOIA lawsuit) show that the NSA may have killed off its bulk collection of US persons' emails back in 2011, but it quickly found another way to obtain these -- a way that circumvented restrictions on domestic collections.

Pausing to unload the second truck fill of gravel to line our catch basin beside the shop. One wheelbarrow at a time...
Federal agents took more money and stuff from Americans in 2014 than burglars did. Civil asset forfeiture resulted in $4.5b of revenue...
That $4.5 billion figure is shocking on its own.
But it's even more shocking when you put it in this perspective: in that same year, FBI records show burglars took only $3.9 billion from Americans.

... I can accept messianic alien orphan superheroes and skyscraper-sized battle robots, but I will not stand for inaccurate portrayals of structural mechanics. It's fine to bend the laws of physics if the plot warrants it, but most suspension bridge mistakes are so needless and stupid that their only function seems to be irritating engineers.

Shadow forwarded along this Customers Suck thread about parking an adult-sized pedaled tricycle in a parking lot "automobile" space. Instructive on several fronts, especially in terms of how people think about separated infrastructure.

OH awkward question for this millenium: "uh...what...size is your Diffie-Hellman prime...?"
Uranus might be full of surprises. Uranus is a gas giant.
"Most of the more than a thousand planets discovered around other stars are similar in size to Uranus," Karkoschka said. "They are too far for us to be able to measure their rotational profiles for the foreseeable future, but with an improved knowledge about Uranus, we might be better able to draw conclusions about their interior structure."
Spoiler Alert: Your honor roll student ends up in a cubicle.
OH on asking consent before offering advice: 'Is this a "Fuck'em" conversation or a "Fix-it" conversation?'. Brilliant summary.
