What happened: An attacker stole the username and password belonging to a Comodo trusted partner and used the credentials to register nine SSL certificates for seven high-value domains, including Google, Skype, and Yahoo.

Losses: Nine certificates for high-quality domains and the unquestioning trust that many users had in the system of certificate authorities.
