$500K Bounty & Suicides for AshleyMadison, Android Browser Flaws, Amazon Cuts Flash

Suicides, extortion, and a $500,000 bounty for Impact Team… it’s gotten ugly at Ashley Madison.com. Amazon’s dropping Flash ads in September. China’s arrested 15,000 that “jeopardized Internet security” tho that does not mean what you think it means. Patch WordPress, there’s some nasty exploits. Some Android browsers have Zero Day flaws, and will Microsoft ever explain what Windows 10 is patching???
