Diginotar has been breached so their certificates are a security problem for android roms.

I seem to have a problem (that could be) related to this bogus certificate problem. Looking at the age of this post I would hope this isn't still an issue. I would like to think that things this problematic would be fixed by now. However I've found certs in my Google account dated back as far as 2014, many of them seem to be obviously bogus. I have a few questions about this issue.

Is this something that could sync across devices?
Other than the removal of obviously bogus certificates are there steps I should take to avoid this happening in the future?
Have the bigger software companies done anything about this issue and/or has the issue been through the appropriate disclosure? Should it?
Is there more up to date information related to this issue?

I am a newbie and fighting some sort of bug or malware that seems to be related, I do appreciate any help available. Thanks.
