This week, we cover WordPress vulnerabilities targeted by a malvertising campaign and an important iOS security update. We also look at Equifax’s $700 million settlement and a recent uptick of new breaches added to Have I Been Pwned. Along with other news and a summary of WordCamp Boston, we talk about the film project we’ve worked on since late last year. Open | The Community Code will premiere November 2019. We talk about how and why we created this film about the open-source WordPress community.
