Security Now - Tue, 06/19/2018 - 18:57

This week we discuss yesterday's further good privacy news from Apple, the continuation of VPNFilter, an extremely clever web browser cross-site information leakage side-channel attack, Microsoft Research's fork of OpenVPN for security in a post-quantum world, Microsoft drops the ball on a 0-day remote code execution vulnerability in JScript, Valve finally patches a longstanding and very potent RCE vulnerability, Redis caching servers continue to be in serious trouble, a previously patched IE 0-day continues to find victims, Google's latest Chrome browser has removed support for HTTP public key pinning (HPKP), and... what is "Certificate Transparency" and why do we need it?
