  1. Cybercriminals Could be Coming After Your Coffee - From the article: When it comes to whether you should get an IoT device or not, the general rule is to first ask yourself this question: Do I really need my light bulb/coffee pot/washing machine/doorbell/other household items to be smart? The real question is "When will I no longer have a choice?".
  2. JWT Tokens: The What, How, and Why - This helped me understand things: The main difference to notice here is that with cookies, the information is stored server-side, while with JWT, since the information is stored in the actual token, the information is stored client-side. Since the server doesn’t need to remember anything, this simplifies things a lot, especially when working with multiple servers and having different sessions. Some JWT attacks rely on poor key management....
  3. Attackers finding new ways to exploit and bypass Office 365 defenses - Help Net Security - Oh, all we need is Zero Trust: Zero-trust email: ​Adhere to a zero-trust-email approach, which should serve as a baseline for an email security strategy. All email, especially ongoing interactions with external partners and suppliers, should be considered areas of compromise.
  4. Oracle VM VirtualBox Buffer Overflow - A buffer overflow vulnerability in Oracle VM VirtualBox was privately reported to Oracle on September 22, 2020 and was silently patched in VM VirtualBox version 6.1.16r140961. Not-so-silent (though no exploit example was provided, I didn't look further).
  5. Microsoft IE Browser Death March Hastens - Most users are running Chrome, Chrome has plenty of vulnerabilities, do we need IE any longer?
  6. 78% of Microsoft 365 admins don't activate MFA - Help Net Security - 99% is a lot... According to SANS, 99% of data breaches can be prevented using MFA. This is a huge security risk, particularly during a time when so many employees are working remotely.
