And then there were two: Another dangerous Dell root certificate discovered

The Dell System Detect application also installs a self-signed root certificate on computers

Dell XPS 13 and 15

The plot thickens: After Dell confirmed that one of its support tools installed a dangerous self-signed root certificate and private key on computers, users discovered a similar certificate deployed by a different Dell tool.

The second certificate is called DSDTestProvider and is installed by an application called DSD (Dell System Detect). Users are prompted to download and install this tool when they visit the Dell support website and click the "Detect Product" button.
