This week we look at additional changes coming from Google's Chromium team, another powerful instance of newer cross-platform malware, the publication of a 0-day exploit after Microsoft missed its deadline, the return of Sabri Haddouche with browser crash attacks, the reasoning behind Matthew Green's decision to abandon Chrome after a change in release 69... and an "UnGoogled" Chromium alternative that Matthew might approve of, Western Digital's pathetic response to a very serious vulnerability, a cool device exploit collection website, a question about the future of the Internet, a sobering example of the aftermarket in unwiped hard drives, the Mirai Botnet creators are now working with and helping the FBI, another fine levied against Equifax, and a look at Cloudflare's quick move to encrypt a remaining piece of web metadata.
