Nice.
 
Interesting. NIST has put this on Github too [ https://github.com/usnistgov/800-63-3 ]. They are discouraging SMS as a way to perform 2FA. "An upcoming pair of “special publications,” as its official communiques are called, update its recommendations for a host of authentication and security issues, and the documents are up for “public preview.” I put the phrase in quotes because technically, a “public draft” triggers formal responses from partners and, in fact, from NIST itself.

To avoid red tape, the Institute is trying out a new method for reviewing and commenting on the guidelines that isn’t quite so official: GitHub. “It only seemed appropriate for us to engage where so much of our community already congregates and collaborates,” reads an intro to the new process.
[...]
At any rate, the changes are numerous, but perhaps most relevant for Joe and Jane Six-Pack is the active discouragement of using SMS as an “out of band authenticator” — essentially, a method for delivering a one-time use code for 2FA."

A Malaysian government investment fund is embroiled in a corruption scandal that is roiling an important U.S. ally. Government investigators say nearly $700 million was deposited into Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak’s bank account. More money is believed missing. The fund, 1Malaysia Development Bhd., is under investigation in at least five countries. Mr. Najib and 1MDB have denied wrongdoing and say they are cooperating with investigators.

"Mr M. Bala Subramanion was a postman at a time it took a week for a letter to be delivered locally and when cash was often sent by mail.

Singapore's first Asian Postmaster-General, now 99, has had a biography written about him. Singapore, My Country, by Ms Nilanjana Sengupta, was launched earlier this month at the Fullerton Hotel.
[...]
Ms Sengupta, in a speech, said Mr Bala Subramanion's life spanned many of the notable Indian organisations of Singapore, such as the SIA [Singapore Indian Association], of which he was former president."
