I'd agree completely. A thief stealing your laptop or ereader isn't going to spend the time. They'll wipe and sell.

It is probably easy to expose it to the Internet. Just install the server to a Root server and you will have a problem.

Have you ever tried to access one of the 13 root servers other than through DNS?

Personally, For over 15 years, I haven't allowed any of my servers/computers direct access from the Internet without a hardware firewall(*) in the middle other than one server which runs my collection of honeypots VMs and has no internal access. We all need a hobby.

* Any internal device that needs to be accessed from outside the LAN gets firewall rules and network address translated through a hardware firewall ( I do like Palo Alto's devices).

An author I follow marked her ARC’s (Author Review Copies, sent out before release date) and one of those ended up on a pirate site

But was the copy at the pirate site stolen, or instead uploaded by the user the book was sent to? I know which of those I think is more likely.

I think it was the user the book was sent to. I think the author thought so too. She stopped doing ARCs after that.

Or a recipient of the ARC sends a copy to a friend who passes it along to another who then uploads it far and wide.
