Pinned Security Bulletins thread in Tech News

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Pretty simple, a thread for posting security warnings and ways to protect yourself from them. Stuff that's not really worth of a new thread (like Spectre variant #55433398831) could go here, and stuff worth a full thread (like https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/957729-facebook-attempted-to-shut-down-a-tool-that-allows-you-to-inspect-their-data-tracking/)


could get it's own thread AND go here.

i don't know if this it the right place for publishing guides on how to protect against XYZ. The first step is understanding the vulnerability which can be difficult. Just look at spectre side channel attacks and it's complexity. 


Btw. most times the answer will be install the update
