SN 597: Traitors In Our Midst

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 18:29:54 PST

(image)

The best "I'm not a Robot" video ever, Cisco's WebEx problem is far more pervasive than first believed, more bad news (and maybe some good news) for Netgear, Gmail adds to the no-no list, a hotel finally decides to abandon electronic room keying, more arguments against the use of modern AV, another clever exploitable CSS browser hack, some (hopefully final) password complexity follow-ups, a bit of errata and miscellany, a SQRL status update, a "Luke... trust the SpinRite" story, and a very nice analysis of a little-suspected threat hiding among us.

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 18:52:44 PST

(image)

A classic bug at GoDaddy bypassed domain validation for 8850 issued certificates, could flashing a peace sign compromise your biometric data?, it's not only new IoT devices that may tattle, many autos have been able to for the past 15 years, McDonald's gets caught in a web security bypass, more famous hackers have been hacked, Google uses AI to increase image resolution, more on the value or danger of password tricks, and... does WhatsApp incorporate a deliberate crypto backdoor?
