User Agent

Hello @Sven
I would like to know if a user agent is used when checking link ? 

If yes, is it unique or randomized?
When going from page to page, is the link similar to a visit?
My question comes down to whether the link is “activated” by something that looks like a normal visit for Google.

Since a lot of sites use the tracking script, Google probably comes to know if which way the visitors comes … or bots. They could be wise to modify the IP headers and even to let load the famous tracking script for Ser manual verification ….

What user agent does Amazon WorkMail use? [closed]

I recently had a spike of clicks on my newsletter, which is sent with tls encryption, but most of them seems to originate from ec2 instances with this user agent : “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/72.0.3626.109 Safari/537.36”.

Can anyone advise as to the reason for it ? (the subscribers are not that tech-savy)

SQL Server Agent job for LinkedServer

has anybody seen this error before? I have a job running on server A against linked server B. However linked server B is also server A.

The job didn’t complete successfully for the second times in a row.

Is Customer Service Agent and the Customer two different personas or different roles?

Are ‘Personas’ and ‘Roles’ different in every scenario?

Although i did my reading about roles and personas, im a bit confused about this topic with the context i’m working on.

Scenario – One day Bruce(Customer) finds out his water heater is broken and calls XYZ company to get it fixed. John(Customer service agent) receives the call and assigns Bob(Technician) for to install a water heater.

John, Bruce and Bob are these 3 personas? or are they considered as 3 different user roles who interact with XYZ service?

SQL Server Agent – Report Failure but continue When intermediate step fails

I have a SQL Server Agent job that has three steps with the following control flow:

  • Step 1 – on success – Go to next Step. on fail – job fails
  • Step 2 – on success – Go to next Step. on fail – Go to next Step
  • Step 3 – on success – report success, on fail – report fail

However, What I want to happen is, if step 2 fails, run step 3 but report that the job has failed (regardless of whether step 3 is successful or not)

The only way I can think to do this is as per the screenshot below which duplicates the final step but the duplicate step reports failure if it succeeds

Is there a better way of doing this?

Is directly echo the php server variable for user agent a security hole?

Is this script vuln to php/js code injection? In my quick test i changed the useragent to a php script but it will not be executed just printed. if change user agent to a javascript code i receive i connection refused by the webserver.

so am i safe with this type of script?

<?php  $  u=$  _SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] ?> <html> <pre>string</pre> <?php echo $  u; ?> </html>
