uMatrix has an unfixed vulnerability: here is a workaround
https://www.ghacks.net/2021/07/15/umatrix-has-an-unfixed-vulnerability-here-is-a-workaround/
Why not simply use uBlock origin?

I do use it, along with uMatrix, they aren't exactly the same.

Word Press forces security update: https://woocommerce.com/posts/critical-vulnerability-detected-july-2021/

This until cybercriminals will have taken over the push request, then we will be in big trouble.

Too many low-grade consumer websites on this PHP-driven CMS i.m.h.o.

New Windows 10 vulnerability allows anyone to get admin privileges
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/new-windows-10-vulnerability-allows-anyone-to-get-admin-privileges/
https://msrc.microsoft.com/update-guide/vulnerability/CVE-2021-36934
Since MS has already acknowledged the vulnerability, hopefully a patch will follow soon
for any systems affected.
Even without a patch, unless someone gains access to your system, this isn't really a problem. IMHO

Large chunks of the Internet went down to a DNS issue at Akamai CDN to-day.

Re: https://www.engadget.com/playstation-network-down-161951186.html

WEF has warned us we are in for more Internet down time in the foreseeable future.
The Interwebz is under attack, folks, it is not only viruses, ddos, ransomware.

This may effect us all. Better be forearmed by being forewarned.
(Also remember yesterdays interruptions of digital banking in the UK, three major UK banks had downtime).

Emisoft affirmed the decryption key is universal.
The REvil group now seems as vanished from this planet  :)
Maybe a 'deal of sorts' was struck.
