This week we discuss another worrisome trend in malware, another fitness tracking mapping incident and mistake, something to warn our friends and family to ignore, the value of periodically auditing previously-granted web app permissions, when malware gets picky about the machines it infects, another kinda-well-meaning Coinhive service gets abused, what are the implications of D-Link losing control of its code signing cert?, some good news about Android apps, iOS v11.4.1 introduces "USB Restricted Mode"... but is it?, a public service reminder about the need to wipe old thumb drives and memory cards, what about those free USB fans that were handed out at the recent North Korea / US summit?... and then we take a look at eMail's STARTTLS system and the EFF's latest initiative to increase its usefulness and security.

We invite you to read our show notes.
