This week we discuss a new clever and disheartening abuse of our browser's handy-dandy username and password autofill, some recent and frantic scurrying around by many OS kernel developers, a just-released MacOS 0 day allowing full local system compromise, another massively popular router falls to the IoT botnets, even high-quality IoT devices have problems, the evolution of adblocking and countermeasures, an important update for Mozilla's Thunderbird, a bit of miscellany, listener feedback, and an update on the NSA's possible intervention into secure encryption standards.
