Ok, we had an interesting week, and by now everybody knows why we were
merging all those odd x86 page table isolation patches without
following all of the normal release timing rules.

But rc7 itself is actually pretty calm. Yes, there were a few small
follow-up patches to the PTI code still, and yes, there’s been a fair
amount of discussion about the exact details of the Spectre fixes, but
at least in general things have been nice and calm. And we’re actually
back to “normal” in that most of the patches are drivers (mainly GPU,
some crypto, some random small things – input layer, platform drivers
etc). There are misc small filesystem and arch updates too.

The appended shortlog is small enough that it’s easy to just scroll
down and get a feel for what happened.

Microsoft’s Meltdown and Spectre Patch Is Bricking Some AMD PCs

Mark Wilson writes: As if the Meltdown and Spectre bug affecting millions of processors was not bad enough, the patches designed to mitigate the problems are introducing issues of their own. Perhaps the most well-known effect is a much-publicized performance hit, but some users are reporting that Microsoft’s emergency patch is bricking their computers. We’ve already seen compatibility issues with some antivirus tools, and now some AMD users are reporting that the KB4056892 patch is rendering their computer unusable. A further issue — error 0x800f0845 — means that it is not possible to perform a rollback.

Western Digital ‘My Cloud’ Devices Have a Hardcoded Backdoor

BrianFagioli shares a report from BetaNews: Today, yet another security blunder becomes publicized, and it is really bad. You see, many Western Digital MyCloud NAS drives have a hardcoded backdoor, meaning anyone can access them — your files are at risk. It isn’t even hard to take advantage of it — the username is “mydlinkBRionyg” and the password is “abc12345cba” (without quotes). To make matters worse, it was disclosed to Western Digital six months ago and the company did nothing. GulfTech Research and Development explains, “The triviality of exploiting this issues makes it very dangerous, and even wormable. Not only that, but users locked to a LAN are not safe either. An attacker could literally take over your WDMyCloud by just having you visit a website where an embedded iframe or img tag make a request to the vulnerable device using one of the many predictable default hostnames for the
