OpenSSL patches, Apple bug fixes, Hilton’s $700k hack bill, Kim Dotcom raid settlement, Signal desktop app, and more

Happy weekend, everyone, except those of you on call, of course. Let us catch you up on all the IT security bits and pieces besides what’s been reported this week.

Down in New Zealand, Kim Dotcom, the bĂȘte noire of Hollywood, reached a settlement with the New Zealand authorities over a rather dramatic raid in 2012 on his home. Cops flew in with guns and dogs to arrest Dotcom and found him hiding in his panic room.

The terms of the settlement haven’t been announced, but Dotcom’s lawyers said the police have promised to review their tactics. Dotcom said he hopes to make his permanent home in New Zealand. Maybe Peter Thiel will be a neighbor?
