PSA: Just hooked up a Logitech trackball for the first time in 15+ years. They are still great, have a scroll wheel and are wireless now! (who knew?) Seriously though, it's pretty great and you should be able to find one for under $30 USD. https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/wireless-trackball-m570

Microsoft has just released an out of band patch for IE on Win 7, Win 8, Win 10 and all recent versions of Server. I believe this is to address the latest Shamoon3 variant which was spotted in the Middle-east and Italy in the past week. Acts as a wiper and is pretty nasty. Check out CVE-2018-8653. Looks like a vulnerability in an older scripting engine. Details here: https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2018-8653
