This week Steve and Leo discuss the long-expected remote vulnerability in Intel's super-secret motherboard Management Engine technology, exploitable open ports in Android apps, another IoT blows a suspect's timeline, newly discovered problems in the Ghostscript interpreter, yet another way for ISPs and others to see where we go, a new bad problem in the Edge browser, Chrome changes its certificate policy, an interesting new "Vigilante Botnet" is growing fast, a proposed solution to smartphone-distracted driving, Ransomware as a service, Net Neutrality heads back to the chopping block (again), an intriguing new service from Cloudflare, and the ongoing Symantec certificate issuance controversy. Then some fun errata, miscellany, and some closing-the-loop feedback from our terrific listeners.
