2 Malicious DHCP server setting itself as the gateway.  So, use static addresses?

3 J - thanks for offering, I got it sorted out.  I wish Microsoft would just give you the keys you paid for with OEM systems though, the way they used to.

The trick overrides the routing that your VPN wants to use, so that wouldn't solve the problem.  If your VPN uses specific routes (as a corporate VPN would do) rather than a single global route, you're safe though.

So a VPN could set up 256 Class A routes and be immune to this attack.

5 Pixy, something like the magical jellybean keyfinder won't work?  (Admittedly you'd have to, I guess, proactively retrieve the key in case of a drive failure, which probably nobody does...)

6 Complex story.  I could certainly have done it if I'd thought of it in advance, but that drive has been thoroughly erased at this point.

I could do that with the Beelink systems though and get the three Windows 11 Pro keys.
