A selection of this week’s more interesting vulnerability disclosures and cyber security news.

The week’s news is still awash with the devastating DDoS against DYN which appears to have been by a surprisingly low number of IoT devices. Then, with fruther news of some other networks being hit too, I don’t think this is going to get any better. Anyway you can pick up those articles below as my main focus this week is the announcement of a practical application of Rowhammer.

This one which really perked my geeky interest last year, seemed just a fascinating bit of research though clever in the way of bit-flipping neighbour memory cells to induce a security hole, would in practice be very difficult to achieve. How wrong was that? Looks like someone has actually achieved a compromise! Will be interesting to see if anyone actually gets this to apply to other devices.

And for all the other fun we’ve had this week…
