Washington Post reports:
  An offshore company that is trusted by the major web browsers and other
  tech companies to vouch for the legitimacy of websites has connections
  to contractors for U.S. intelligence agencies and law enforcement,
  according to security researchers, documents and interviews. Google's
  Chrome, Apple's Safari, nonprofit Firefox and others allow the company,
  TrustCor Systems, to act as what's known as a root certificate
  authority, a powerful spot in the internet's infrastructure that
  guarantees websites are not fake, guiding users to them seamlessly.


macOS (Score:2)
On macOS, the TrustCor root certificates can be found in the Keychain Access app.

  Since these are 'System Roots' certificates, it is difficult to remove
  them from keychain in newer versions of MacOS. You can however, disable
  them with a few mouse clicks. Tested on MacOS Ventura 13.0.1. [] Disclaimer: I am
  unaffiliated with this site and can't vouch for the author, It was the
  most concise and offered the greatest detail on macOS PKI that I could
  find quickly. Most importantly, it helped me to disable TrustCor certs,
  which was my goal.
