Dell’s stupidity is on display as Dell has inserted a base root certificate that can sign code.  The really bad part is dell leaves the keys to this cert exposed in the clear so it is easy to extract the keys from the machine and use them as a man in the middle attack.  There’s two certificates in question here but also Dell has installed a .dll that makes these files unkillable.

How do you get rid of this garbage?

  1.  first uninstall Dell Foundation Services in add/remove programs
  2. reboot

At least Dell made it easy to get rid of.
