Weekly Update 296

Data breaches, 3D printing and passwords - just the usual variety of things this week. More specifically, that really cool Pwned Passwords downloader that I know a bunch of people have been waiting on, and now we've finally released. It hits the existing k-anonymity API over 1 million times and that API is already going on 2 billion requests a month so I'm kinda curious to see what happens if everyone starts running the downloader at the same time... 🤔
