Update all the things

This is never an exhaustive list of course, but just a few things that hit my radar.

  • Google has discovered a bunch of vulnerabilities in DNSMasq, a widely used service for DNS, DHCP, router advertisements and network boot. If you use it, make sure to install patches. (link)
  • Android fixed 14 bugs, five of which critical, in its October update. (link)
  • Netgear released 50 patches for its devices, 20 of which rated critical. (link)
