To me, as big an issue as the original FUBAR is the
alleged/reported failure of both MelIT and VGRS to respond and
attempt to lessen the damage they had helped cause.

I'm no lawyer, but believe under US laws such failure to mitigate
is a factor in civil judgements -- if you choose to {say} just
stand there and look stoopid rather than call 911 after you knock
over the propane torch and start the house on fire....

Add to the mix the detail that Verisign is paying a LARGE
settlement out on a past infamous theft....and you'd think they'd
Buy Some Clue...
