Weekly Update 135

It's another episode with Scott Helme this week as he's back in town for NDC Security on the Gold Coast (still a got a week to get those tickets, folks!) The timing actually works out pretty well as there was this week's announcement around Let's Encrypt transition of their root cert which is right up his alley. There's also the whole TicTokTrack kids watch situation which aligns very well with many of both our prior experience. And just on that, when we recorded the video they were planning on getting the service back up and running that day (Thursday Aus time when we recorded). Turns out that didn't happen and frankly, kudos to them for taking a little more time to get things right:

All that and more in this week's update:
