A highly critical bug has been discovered in Drupal that can be used for remote code execution . Drupal is a Content Management System (CMS) commonly used to host websites. In the past this sort of exploit has been used to deliver remote access tools, ransomware, and cryptominers to web servers . Based on similar exploits against various CMS software in the past, we can expect that attackers will begin exploiting this software quickly.

NOTE: Drupal core developers have stated that exploits for this vulnerability will likely be developed within days. Drupal site owners must take action immediately or risk complete compromise of their sites.
A remote code execution vulnerability exists within multiple subsystems of Drupal 7.x and 8.x. 
This potentially allows attackers to exploit multiple attack vectors on a Drupal site, which could result in the site being completely compromised.

A team of security researchers disclosed several software analysis methods that, when used for malicious purposes, have the potential to improperly gather sensitive data from many types of computing devices with many different vendors’ processors and operating systems.
Systems with microprocessors utilizing speculative execution and indirect branch prediction may allow unauthorized disclosure of information to an attacker with local user access via a side-channel analysis.

Researchers have discovered serious weaknesses in WPA2, a protocol that secures all modern protected Wi-Fi networks. This includes everything from computers, tablets, phones, home wireless routers and any device that supports WPA2 over Wi-Fi.
While details are still emerging, not all vendors have released patches as of yet. So, in some cases, there will be little users can do until patches are released. An attacker needs to be in range of an access-point to leverage this attack.
