This week we have a Marcus Hutchins update, the backstory on the NIST's rewrite of their 15-year-old password guidance, can DNA be used to hack a computer? Can stop sign graffiti be used to misdirect autonomous vehicles?, the final nail in the WoSign/StartCom coffin, why we need global Internet policy treaties, this week in "researchers need protection", a VPN provider who is doing everything right, Elcomsoft's password manager cracker, a bit of errata and miscellany... and some closing the loop feedback from this podcast's terrific listeners.

We invite you to read our show notes.
