    Hi. I was wondering what members might recommend for a single-best source for security-related news, preferably short, to the point, and not necessarily technically detailed. I know many things don't have a "best" selection for one reason or another, but usually there's a source that's "good enough" and "better than most". Sort of "things you need to be aware of this week", like patching this or that, or stop using some software because of whatever reasons. I occasionally go through Wilders' "new posts" to see what's topical, but often when I get busy I don't have time to pick my way through the many posts.

    Thanks.

    I frequently visit Threatpost and Krebs on Security. Like them.

    I like Sophos' Naked Security newsletter ... must be several others here too, since they're frequently quoting from and/or linking to it.

    I don't know if there is a single-best source for security-related news,
    but along with those already mentioned I also visit......
    http://www.darkreading.com/ and http://www.theregister.co.uk/security/

    I am subscribed to the CyberWire newsletter. It is a daily email with a well done digest of the previous day's cyber security related news. Check it out: http://thecyberwire.com/

    While there isn't a singular source, Techmeme works for me.
