This is what happens when people that have no idea about a subject try to regulate things.

Yesterday evening I've released v1.5 hex editor after a long delay. Users of previous versions should receive an update notification if they have it enabled.

If you're using bash or zsh and you don't know the ^X^E shortcut, learn it now.

First, ensure you have a valid `EDITOR` environment variable set to your favourite editor (like vim or emacs).

Second, enter some command, but don't hit enter.

Third, use Ctrl+X Ctrl+E and learn that you can use your editor to modify the command before running it in the shell.

This is pretty helpful if you're trying to edit a long command line.

It appears that Powershell is also a good choice when it comes to mine Monero (XMR) on stolen systems - freebuf.com/column/149286.html

The Pirate Bay website "silently" turns your browser into a Monero miner (if mining can be silent) - pirates-forum.org/Thread-PIRAT

New macOS High Sierra will require user's explicit permission to load a kernel extension that is installed with software, even if this kernel extension is digitally signed.

This is interesting, because from one point of view it will decrease the possibility of rogue code being loaded into kernel, but some applications like antivirus (aimed towards non-technical users), virtualization, applications that come with your new shiny hardware, some kinds of video software, will be impacted.
