Winter Olympics-themed cyberattacks rely on well-crafted social engineering. Patch Tuesday addressed Spectre, Meltdown, Flash, and an Office zero-day. Yossi Oren from BGU on vulnerabilities in mobile device replacement touchscreens. Stay away from flashlight apps. (And take a look at your dog-walker's app, too, while you're at it.)
