Welcome to this week in NerdNews (TWINN). Your weekly top 5 technical and security issues Nerds should pay attention to:

PunkSpider—the Search Engine for Web Exploits—Rises From the Dead. This controversial service is an interesting renewed approach in shaming public-facing websites.

Iran’s Secret Cyber Files. The very existence of this type of reporting must raise our collective security action.

Apple releases fix for iOS and macOS zero-day, 13th this year. That’s quite the journey, and these facts alone tell a story.

A Tech Firm Has Blocked Some Governments From Using Its Spyware Over Misuse Claims. Israel’s NSO Group has denied media reports its Pegasus software is linked to the mass surveillance of journalists and rights defenders, but suspended service to some governments following the reports.

Meet Paragon: An American-Funded, Super-Secretive Israeli Surveillance Startup That ‘Hacks WhatsApp And Signal’. Move over NSO, here’s Paragon.

Did you know? 

Process Hacker is like ProcessViewer on Steroids (reference from Security Now Episode #829). Powerful resource to investigate running processes on Windows.
