Security Now!Security Now! is a discussion between Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte on issues of computer security and, conversely, insecurity.

Covered topics have included security vulnerabilities, firewalls, password security, spyware, rootkits, Wi-Fi, virtual private networks, and virtual machines.

Sometimes we'll discuss something that just happened. Sometimes we'll talk about long-standing problems, concerns, or solutions. Either way, every week we endeavor to produce something interesting and important for every personal computer user.

This week a widelyused embedded OS (FreeRTOS) is in the doghouse, as are at least eight D-Link routers which have serious problems most of which D-Link has stated will never be patched. We look at five new problems in Drupal 7 and 8, two of which are rated critical, trouble with Live Networks RTSP streaming server, still more trouble with the now-infamous Windows 10 Build 1809 feature update, and a long standing 0-day in the widely used and most popular plugin for jQuery. We then look at what can only be described as an embarrassing mistake in the open source libssh library, and we conclude by examining a fun recent hack and pose its solution to our audience as our Security Now Puzzler of the Week!
