This week, Leo and Steve discuss Russia’s hacking involvement in the US Election; that, incredibly, it gets even worse for Yahoo!, misguided anti-porn legislation in South Carolina, troubling legislation from Australia, legal confusion from the Florida appellate court, some good news from the U.S. Supreme Court, Linux security stumbling, why Mac OS X got an important fix last week, the Steganography malvertising attack that targets home routers, news of a forthcoming inter-vehicle communications mandate, professional cameras being called upon to provide built-in encryption, LetsEncrypt gets a worrisome extension, additional news, errata, miscellany… and how exactly DOES that “I really really promise I'm not a robot (really!)” non-CAPTCHA checkbox CAPTCHA work?
