This article talks about the deal made by VeriSign to sell a majority stake in Jamba to News Corp. Analysts consider the deal as a positive for VeriSign, but according to Albert Lin, American Technology Research analyst, it is less attractive for Verisign because the company remains responsible for any fines or liabilities attached to Jamba's prior activities.
