A selection of this week’s more interesting vulnerability disclosures and cyber security news. Normally I single out a few articles each week, however its becoming quite clear that there is an increase in cryptocurrency related attacks and attempts to mine more. Not included here, but I’ve seen an article claiming that more power is being used in Iceland for cryptocurrency than homes.
