Happy Thanksgiving! While the turkey and pie settle in your belly, why not also digest some fantastic security news stories with our pal Gh0sthax?

Today's stories include:

  • It was another epic month of patching - both Threatpost and Krebs have great coverage of what you need to know.

  • We don't support software pirating, but it's interesting that we just got a demo of Cobalt Strike spun up, and now the source code was leaked.

  • Always download software updates from their source, not from not-so-trustworthy sources like random search results in Google and pop-up boxes.

  • As a follow up to a story from last month, ransomware was not to blame for the death of a woman in Germany.
