This week Steve and Leo discuss an update on the FCC's Net Neutrality comments, the discovery of an active keystroke logger on dozens of HP computer models, the continuing loss of web browser platform heterogeneity, the OSTIF's just-completed OpenVPN security and practices audit, more on the dangers of using smartphones as authentication tokens, some extremely welcome news on the Android security front, long-awaited updated password recommendations from NIST, some follow-up errata, a bit of tech humor and miscellany, closing the loop with some listener feedback... then a look at last week's global explosion of the WannaCry worm.
