Over 30 million Dell devices are at risk for remote BIOS attacks due to four separate security bugs, which can have far reaching effects for enterprise organizations heavily invested in Dell devices. VMware Carbon Black App Control has been updated this week to fix a critical-severity vulnerability that allows authentication bypass. Antivirus creator John McAffee dies in a Spanish jail, and a bug found by a security researcher in Atlassian’s authentication could have led to a supply chain attack. A security update is planned for Google Drive that could break shared links. And a number of organizations were affected by security breaches, including the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
