This week we discuss yet another treat from Cloudflare, the growing legislative battle over Net Neutrality, the rise of Python malware, Cisco's update report on the VPNFilter malware, still more Chrome controversy and some placating, the rapid exploitation of 0-day vulnerabilities, the first UEFI rootkit found in the wild, another new Botnet discovery, the danger of the RDP protocol, a nasty website browser trick and how to thwart it, a quick update on recent non-fiction and science fiction, and then a look into the recent massive 50 million account Facebook security breach.
