This week we discuss Intel’s Spectre & Meltdown microcode update, this week in crypto jacking, Tavis strikes again, Georgia on my mind (and not in a good way), news from the iPhone hackers at Cellebrite, Apple to move its Chinese customer data, e-Passports? Not really, Firefox 60 loses a feature, the IRS, and cryptocurrencies, Android P enhances Privacy, malicious code signing news, a VERY cool Cloudfront/Troy Hunt hack, a bit of errata, miscellany, and closing the loop feedback from our terrific listeners, and a closer look at WebAssembly.

We invite you to read our show notes.
