Warning : backup your device before installing in case something goes wrong ...

dpkg -i isslfix.deb
launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

Visit to check if this is working.

If you already visited this page without the fix applied, reload the page or clear Safari's cache.

You should see the "Cannot Verify Server Identity" popup, and this message in syslog :

<Warning>: iSSLFix: Certificate <1BDC0A9E-7FC6-4BA4-A9E5-41F206B82D81> in chain starting at <> has isCA=0 => possible MITM attempt, making validation fail

Because securityd is restarted, existing processes and daemons will lose their "connexion" to it and most calls to the Security framework (Keychain, cert validation, etc) will fail : iTunes wont be able to connect to the device, apps will be unable to access the keychain, etc. These issues should disappear after a device reboot.

If securityd crashed (check /Library/Logs/CrashReporter/), remove the package (dpkg -r isslfix) before rebooting.

Comodo stolen certificates blacklist

For devices with older firmwares, the blacklist added in iOS 4.3.2 is replicated (see blacklist.c and comodo.h).

DigiNotar CAs blacklist

The public keys for the following certificates are blacklisted in v1.2

  • DigiNotar Root CA (88 68 bf e0 8e 35 c4 3b 38 6b 62 f7 28 3b 84 81 c8 0c d7 4d)

  • DigiNotar Cyber CA (ab f9 68 df cf 4a 37 d7 7b 45 8c 5f 72 de 40 44 c3 65 bb c2)

  • DigiNotar Services 1024 CA (fe dc 94 49 0c 6f ef 5c 7f c6 f1 12 99 4f 16 49 ad fb 82 65)

  • DigiNotar PKIoverheid CA Organisatie - G2 (bc 5d 94 3b d9 ab 7b 03 25 73 61 c2 db 2d ee fc ab 8f 65 a1)
