Sites vulnerable to newly revived ROBOT exploit included Facebook and PayPal.
On December 12, 2017, a research paper with the title Return of Bleichenbacher's Oracle Threat was made publicly available.

This paper describes how some Transport Layer Security (TLS) stacks are vulnerable to variations of the classic Bleichenbac...
Welcome to ransomware in 2017 – the year global enterprises and industrial systems were added to the ever-growing list of victims, and targeted attackers started taking a serious interest in the threat. It was also a year of consistently high attack numbers, but limited innovation.

IT threat evolution Q3 2017

Our growing dependence on technology, connectivity and data means that businesses present a bigger attack surface than ever. Targeted attackers have become more adept at exploiting their victimsrsquo; vulnerabilities to penetrate corporate defences while ‘flying under the radarrsquo;.
The P1735 IEEE standard describes methods for encrypting electronic-design intellectual property(IP),as well as the management of access rights for such IP.

The methods are flawed and,in the most egregious cases,enable attack vectors that allow recovery of the entire underlying plaintext IP.
Implementations of IEEE P1735 may be weak to cryptographic attacks that allow an attacker to obtain plaintext intellectual property without the key,among other impacts.
FSB wanted keys, messaging outfit said Nyet Encrypted messaging app Telegram must pay 800,000 roubles for resisting Russia's FSB's demand that it help decrypt user messages.…
All modern WiFi access points and devices that have implemented the protocol vulnerable to attacks that allow decryption, traffic hijacking other attacks.
Second, unrelated crypto vulnerability also found in RSA code library in TPM chips.
Wi-Fi Protected Access(WPA,more commonly WPA2)handshake traffic can be manipulated to induce nonce and session key reuse,resulting in key reinstallation by a wireless access point(AP)or client.

An attacker within range of an affected AP and client may leverage these vulnerabilities to conduct attacks that are dependent on the data confidentiality protocols being used.

Attacks may include arbitrary packet decryption and injection,TCP connection hijacking,HTTP content injection,or the replay of unicast and group-addressed frames.

These vulnerabilities are referred to as Key Reinstallation Attacks orKRACKattacks.
KRACK attack allows other nasties, including connection hijacking and malicious injection.
A new tool analyses the ransom note and the encrypted file in order to offer the appropriate decryption tool - if it exists.
30.8% of W3C members disapproved of the decision.
Defendant to ask Supreme Court if compelled decryption is a 5th Amendment breach.
