HP accidentally signed malware, will revoke certificate

(Ars:) http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/10/hp-accidentally-signed-malware-will-revoke-certificate/

    Regardless of the cause, the revocation of the affected certificate
    will require HP to re-issue a large number of software packages with a
    new digital signature. While the certificate drop may not affect
    systems with the software already installed, users will be alerted to
    a bad certificate if they attempt to re-install software from original
    media. The full impact of the certificate revocation won't be known
    until after Verisign revokes the certificate on October 21, Wahlin
