Chinese cell phone manufacturer OnePlus (incidentally my daily carry) plans on including cryptocurrency mining baked into their next release of Oxygen in the OnePlus 6, sparking security concerns.

The IETF floated a new analog protocol for internet traffic in an attempt to get some more security in the system.

 I don't often talk biotech here, but Razer (the gaming hardware maker) is creating a nanobot infused energy drink for gamers.  I am sure that will go well.

Finally some good news - plans to add a security parameter in response headers.  Should be a good move toward better browser level decision making.

And that's been your week in application security.
