  1. Your Smart Christmas Lights Are Safer Than They Were Last Year - There is hope for IoT security! (and I own these lights, and hopefully the new version...or maybe hopefully the old version so I can more easily hack my Christmas tree): The good news is that researchers at Pen Test compared tests they did on the Twinkly lights (from the manufacturer LEDWORKs) last year to the new version of the lights released for the 2019 holiday season and found most of the issues to be solved. LEDWORKS replaced the ESP8266 module with the slightly more secure ESP32, which researchers mentioned in their public research about the security of the lights last year was a better option than the one already in the product.

  3. Intels SGX coughs up crypto keys when scientists tweak CPU voltage - 'By subtly increasing or decreasing the current delivered to a CPU—operations known as "overvolting" and "undervolting"—a team of scientists has figured out how to induce SGX faults that leak cryptographic keys, break integrity assurances, and potentially induce memory errors that could be used in other types of attacks. The breakthrough leading to these attacks was the scientists' ability to use previous research into the undocumented model-specific register inside the x86 instruction set to abuse the dynamic voltage scaling interface that controls the amount of voltage used by a CPU. Also noteworthy is surgically controlling the voltage in a way that introduces specific types of attacks.

Consumers not willing to compromise when it comes to IoT security - Help Net Security - It's one thing to say in a survey that you care about the security of your IoT devices, but another when you are actually shopping and realize that a device with the same functionality can be purchased for 75% cheaper than the "secure" one.
  7. AirDoS: Hackers Can Block iPhones, iPads Via AirDrop Attack | SecurityWeek.Com - Annoying: Bagaria discovered that an attacker can use the AirDoS attack to “infinitely spam” all nearby iPhones and iPads with an AirDrop popup. The dialog box will keep appearing on the screen regardless of how many times the user presses the Accept or Decline buttons. The attack will continue even after the user locks and unlocks the device.
