Foreshadow is a new speculative execution exploit targeting Intel's SGX on Core chips
Move over, Meltdown and Spectre. A new "Foreshadow" attack, alternatively called L1 Terminal Fault or L1TF, targets Intel's Security Guard Extensions (SGX) within its Core chips.

You should be safe, though, if you've already patched your PC as part of the earlier Spectre and Meltdown mitigations that rolled out over the course of the year, according to a blog post from Intel, which disclosed the flaw today. (Wired has more of the technical backstory on the bug itself, and Intel has published a video explaining the issue.) Microsoft is also rolling out patches, Intel said.

2 ways to control Windows 10 automatic updates
An up-to-date PC is less vulnerable to attack, so Windows automatic updates are generally a good thing. But sometimes an update will make things worse, rendering a PC problematic, or even unusable until the problem is solved.

If you're using Windows 10, you've got another problem: It won't let you turn off automatic updates. Luckily, there are two workarounds.

But if you chose to use one of these tricks, remember to follow the update news.

July 2018 patches for both Windows and Office brought bugs and bugs of bugs — many of which haven't been solved, even now. We have even reached the unprecedented stage where the .NET team openly warned people against installing buggy updates, and the Monthly Rollup previews got shoved down the Automatic Update chute to fix bugs in the primary Monthly Rollup.

If there is any good news, it's that the majority of the samples appear to be in the testing phase, according to antivirus testing firm AV-TEST, or are based on proof-of-concept software created by security researchers. Still, the number is rising fast.
