WTH Security News March 2, 2020

Your weekly top 5 technical and security issues you should pay attention to:

Firefox now defaults to DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) in the US for new installs. Huge implications including user-unintentional security *bypass* for any security layers in companies that rely on DNS-based filtering.

Sophos privatized (now completed) by Thoma Bravo. $3.8Billion acquisition.

Apple uses its industry weight to shift the security certificate industry. Maximum 1-year length certificates. Likely just the beginning of more momentum coming.

Even the RCMP uses ClearviewAI. Also, Clearview AI has been breached. Did you know?
TLS 1.3 traffic now exceeds TLS 1.2 requests at Cloudflare. This means a practical end to Proxies and MiTM (Man in The Middle) boxes. Welcome to doing security right 🙂
