Microsoft released an advisory [1] earlier today announcing that they will place a number of DigiNotar root certificates on the "not trusted" list. 

A blog article further explains how certificate stores can be manipulated manually [2].

One important difference between this most recent advisory, and an earlier advisory [3] is that Windows Mobile 6.x/7/7.5 is no longer listed as affected. The earlier advisory stated that Windows Mobile 6.x and 7 are affected. It didn't mention Windows Mobile 7.5. (thanks to a read for pointing this out)
