> NPM has subjected this group to "enhanced login verification," which involves receiving an emailed one-time code on login to confirm account control. To avoid this extra step, you have to activate 2FA.
Having it email a one-time code to an domain that has expired and taken over by a bad actor would not help prevent the takeover in any way unless that code was sent before the domain expired.
It used to be that Google would only return results with all the words, but they changed that to be a lot more lose.
It does provide links under the results of "Must include x" and if you click on it, it will put that word with quotes around it. You can also manually add quotes around either words or phrases, and then it will search for exact matches.
>> Marketing should be the servant, not the master. All too often companies think it is the other way round.
So true, I've even been on a IT project where marketing had come up with an idea (stolen from overseas) and had booked the television advertising even before they scoped the size of the project. So we had a unmovable deadline before the project even got of the ground.

No, he is only eligible for that if he manages to take himself out of the gene-pool, so he either needs to be killed or be rendered sterile by his experiments.
He could get an Honorable Mention though, like this guy though

And even birds get used to it after a while.
I visited a cow barn in the Netherlands where they had this system to deter birds. This system moved the beams around the barn. All that happened is that the birds flew from one part of the barn where the laser was pointing to the other part, and kept feeding, whereas initially it would scare them away.
The titles are in the Checkpoint's advisory blog that is linked to in the article.
Mainly ones with "Fashion Judy", "Animal Judy", "Chef Judy" & "Judy’s Spa Salon" in the title, but it also list some that don't (by the other developer that was mentioned)
That article of course has a link promoting their own security products to protect you (of course if it was that good, why did it take so long for them to find this).
That's probably because most of the IoT projects that do succeed aren't for the domestic market but rather are used in a commercial setting.
I'm aware of sever IoT project the company I worked for was involved with,
1) Sensor in milk vats to measure temperature and other data to be transmitted via the internet, and the results analysed in the cloud to ensure milk quality.
2) Electronic tags for cows and sensors to track stock movement, breeding/production results.
Q: "And what tiny percentage of the population have chronic conditions?"
:About half of all Australians have a chronic disease, and around 20% have at least two, according to new data released online today by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW)."
Close to 50% is a rather large minority.
I take it you said that last with your tongue firmly in cheek.
Both New Zealand & Japan can experience rather large earth quakes and also Tsunamis (although we have been lucky so far in that regard in New Zealand), so not the best locations to store a electronic backup. Estonia well, to close to another super power.
New Zealand's West Island (aka Australia) might be an option though.
This should possibly be thrown out due to prior art, this idea was used in the film Minority Report where a holographic add used a retinal scan to identify customers. In this case incorrectly as he had an eye transplant to avoid detection. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhpCu-ZJiu4
I already borrow eBooks from Auckland City Libraries in New Zealand.
And yes, they have a one copy, one user policy and it has a due date or you have to press a button to return the book at which point you cannot read it anymore unless you check it out again. So I'm a bit puzzled as to why this is such a big issue.
I believe there are also rules in place that each book is only allowed to be borrowed a fixed number of times before the Library has to purchase another copy. The digital equivalent of the book wearing out/being damaged and being replaced just so that authors don't miss out on royalties.
The article at Kaspersky actually says "Fortunately, CryptXXX turned out to be not that difficult to crack".
However it seems to depend on you being able to give it a copy of one of the encrypted files before it was encrypted and the bigger the file the better. "The bigger file you’ve feed to the utility — the more files would be decrypted." So it sounds like they must have used a small key that could be brute forced.

Make sure you declare if you are carrying more than NZ$10,000 or more in cash, or foreign equivalent, otherwise they will catch you with the money sniffing dogs
Another anti-homeless system that some places have implemented are "anti homeless sprinklers", basically a motion sensor with a timer linked to a sprinkler so that out of business hours it will start spraying water if someone stays too long in an alcove so to prevent homeless people from sleeping there. In some jurisdictions they were forced to take them down again.
I was once sent out to inspect a XT PC at a Bus Engineering Depot (where they maintain & repair buses). Apparently the PC had problems printing and odd things happening on the screen. I opened it up and had a look and found it had a inch deep layer of oily dust covering the entire motherboard. I was surprised it was still working at all. As at that time XT's were obsolete, when asked if it was worth repairing I responded, "No, it will be cheaper just to replace it".
