How an Entire Nation Became Russia's Test Lab for Cyberwar
"[I]n Ukraine, the quintessential cyberwar scenario has come to life. Twice. On separate occasions, invisible saboteurs have turned off the electricity to hundreds of thousands of people. Each blackout lasted a matter of hours, only as long as it took for scrambling engineers to manually switch the power on again. But as proofs of concept, the attacks set a new precedent: In Russia’s shadow, the decades-old nightmare of hackers stopping the gears of modern society has become a reality." - Andy Greenberg, Wired

Hacking AirPlay into Sonos – Stephen Wan – Medium
Earlier this year, I bought a Sonos Play:3 speaker. I was impressed with the hardware and sound quality, but the Sonos controller software left me wanting; I was especially unhappy that there was no AirPlay support built-in — a feature I’d expect out of expensive wireless speakers. Unsatisfied, I wanted to put together a solution.
There were two pieces required to get AirPlay on Sonos working: code that could speak the AirPlay protocol and pull out audio, and code that could convince the speaker to play the audio. You can check out the end product, AirSonos, on Github.

Apple’s AirPort not cracked by CIA program that compromised many other routers | iLounge News
The latest round of Vault 7 WikiLeaks documents details how the CIA was able to break into routers and use them to monitor a subject’s web browsing history and intercept passwords, but Apple’s AirPort appears to have been unaffected by the efforts. The agency’s “Cherry Blossom” project ended up gaining access to routers from Asus, Belkin, Buffalo, Dell, DLink, Linksys, Motorola, Netgear, Senao, and US Robotics through one of two methods — use of a still-unknown tool called a “Claymore” or through a direct “supply-chain operation” by accessing a production factory or other part of a company’s distribution chain. While the list of affected hardware was extensive, the “Harpy Eagle” operation targeting Apple’s AirPort never proved successful. After the initial release of the CIA documents confirmed Apple to be a target of the overall program, the company confirmed that most of the exploits that had been revealed were already patched in iOS 10.
