This week we discuss AMD's release of their long-awaited Spectre variant 2 microcode patches, the end of Telegram messenger in Russia, the on-time arrival of Drupalgeddon2, Firefox and TLS v1.3, the new and widespread UPnProxy attacks, Microsoft's reversal on no longer providing Windows security updates without A/V installed, Google Chrome's decision to prematurely remove HTTP cookies, the Android "patch gap", renewed worries over old and insecure Bitcoin crypto, new attacks on old IIS, a WhatsApp photo used for police forensics, and an IoT vulnerability from our "you can't make this stuff up" department.
