Recently on a specific forum, a new database was released containing Linkedin account information. This database supposedly contains at least 700 million account details, though there have been postings claiming that there are more details in addition to those 700 million. The information that was released seems to be accurate, but it is impossible to tell if the entire database is real, as the database is locked behind a paywall. The information also seems to primarily be gathered through a python scraper or similar method and does not contain account passwords. However, it does contain physical location information and a number of other personal details. I won't link the sale thread, but here are a few articles describing the situation.

Wifi fragmentation and aggregation attacks (FragAttacks) are a new collection of vulnerabilities in which a threat actor can exfiltrate data or attack victims within radio range. Mathy Vanhoef, a postdoctoral researcher at New York University Abu Dhabi, recently published his paper, Fragment and Forge: Breaking Wi-Fi through Frame Aggregation and Fragmentation , detailing several attack vectors and examining the intricacies of the aggregation vulnerabilities that have been part of the 802.11 standards since the inception in 1997. Quite interestingly, every device tested was susceptible to one or more of the FragAttacks. While several 802.11 standards make these attacks harder to perform, they can be executed on all devices across all standards. It's a good thing then, that there was a nine-month embargo on information related to these attacks, allowing manufacturers to provide security updates to affected devices. Mathy Vanhoef has also created a website documenting the FragAttack
