Up to 300,000 Iranians may have had their email accounts following a security breach at Dutch firm DigiNotar, BBC reported Tuesday.

The Dutch firm is one of many that guarantees web identities so people know they are safe while surfing the web.

The hacked certificates were used in Iran to eavesdrop private email accounts, the report said.

DigiNotar has passed the list of stolen certificates on to Google so that it can notify users that their privacy may have been jeopardized.
