  • Patent number: 10542018
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for security breach notification. In one implementation, an indication of a security breach is received, at a first device with respect to a user account. Based on the indication of the security breach, a processing device generates a security breach notification, the security breach notification including an instruction to initiate at an account repository one or more actions with respect to the user account. An attempt is made to transmit the security breach notification to the account repository via a first communication interface of the first device. In response to a determination that the security breach notification was not successfully transmitted to the account repository, the security breach notification is transmitted to a second device via a second communication interface of the first device.

  • Patent number: RE42507
    Abstract: A surgical scalpel includes an elongate handle defining a longitudinal axis and having a proximal end and a distal end. The scalpel has a cartridge removably mounted to the handle that has a blade holder with a proximal end and a distal end. There is a blade fixedly attached to blade holder disposed so that the blade projects distally outwardly when the cartridge is mounted on the handle. The cartridge also has a shield with a proximal end, a distal end and a bottom mounted onto the blade holder. The shield is slidably movable between a distal position where the shield substantially prevents inadvertent access to the blade and a proximal position where the shield substantially surrounds a portion of the handle and the blade is exposed for use. The cartridge is releasably mountable to the handle and has elements for substantially preventing movement of the shield with respect to the blade holder unless the cartridge is mounted on the handle.
