Even though on vacation, Dustin Childs dedicated time to provide a closer look at some of the patches for this month in Zero Day Initiative — The July 2018 Security Update Review.  Although he indicated "None of the bugs patched this month are listed as publicly known or under active attack at the time of release." his evaluation is definitely appreciated.
