    Scan your Windows computer for untrusted root certificates

    With the uproar over the eDellRoot and DSDTestProvider root certificates last week, a tool called "RCC" for checking certificate stores on Windows computers was mentioned in the current (11/24) Security Now! podcast (Leo Laporte and Steve Gibson).

    It has received some press from ghacks, Wilders, and The Windows Club...

    It checks the Windows and Firefox security stores and reports on certificates that warrant further review.

    When I ran it, it flagged the DO_NOT_TRUST_FiddlerRoot certificate that the Fiddler web debugging tool installs (which I was aware of).

    Did you read the Responses in http://www.ghacks.net/2015/04/05/sca...-certificates/

    It sounds a bit iffy to me.

    I read the reviews, threads, and comments on all three sites.

    VirusTotal gives it a clean bill of health...

    Malwarebytes did not find anything when I scanned it.

    I've used an earlier version in the past with no issues, but as usual, don't use something you're not comfortable with.

    No hits on the file , 2 on the website. Looks likely OK.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    I kinda doubt that Security Now!, ghacks, Wilders, and The Windows Club would promote malware.

    No issues on the sytems I've run it on, past and current.
