Is it too strong to allow a pc with alert feat to alert his friends?

Assume the following situation: The party has been surprised by an ambush. Every PC is surprised except PC Bob because he has the alert feat. Thanks to his high initiative bonus Bob gets to go first. He shouts “look out” to alert his party members of the imminent threat. The idea is that his party members are no longer surprised because he warned them.

While I think that this makes sense from a story telling perspective I am afraid this would be too strong as it allows one PC with the alert feat to give the “not surprised” part to other members of his party for pretty much free.

Is this allowed? Is there a RAW ruling or similar on this?

If not, do you have any experience with this situation and how did it play out in your games?

How to resolve the Format String Error alert in OWASP ZAP for a web application (ASP.NET C#)?

I have a web application with a log in page. In the log in page, I’ve set maxlength for the username input and the password input, which looks like the code below.

@Html.TextBoxFor(m => m.Username, new { @maxlength="30"}) 

When I run OWASP ZAP, it gives me an alert with the following description.

A Format String error occurs when the submitted data of an input string is evaluated as a command by the application

Potential Format String Error. The script closed the connection on a /%s

But when I remove @maxlength="30", the alert goes away.

I’ve been trying to find the remediation for this alert, but I’ve read that Format String vulnerability doesn’t really exist in C#: Do format string vulnerabilities exist in C# or Java? .

Is it just a “potential” error and nothing to worry about because it’s in C#? Or.. if this is something that needs to be taken care of, what can be done to resolve this alert from OWASP ZAP? (I’d believe removing @maxlength is not a solution).

How can I create a alert through SharePoint REST API?

Is there any REST API which can create the alert on a SharePoint List?

We have a customized website which user can view files on SharePoint, but when user want to subscribe to a folder or file changes, I couldn’t find any REST API to do so. Currently user can only go to SharePoint site, select the file or folder and click “Alert me” to create a new alert. Can I do this for user through a REST API call?

I found there are some information of CSOM API, but I can’t find any REST API related to alerts.

How to get a new mail alert notification popup for Postfix localhost mail in Ubuntu MATE 19.04

I have configured Postfix along with Mailutils to send and receive mails from localhost in Ubuntu MATE 19.04. I can read mails through terminal just fine.

Now how do I get new mail alert notification popups in system tray for incoming mails? Like upon a system boot and whenever new mail arrives afterwards. I’d like the notifications to stay there until dismissed. Many thanks.

Note: Just to be extra clear this setup is for “local only” mails.

Postfix version: 3.3.2-4 Mailutils version: 1:3.5-2build1

SharePoint 2010 Alert Me Not Sending Alerts when Item Deleted

I have an alert setup on a list:

  1. Send e-mail
  2. Only send me alerts when: All changes
  3. Send me an alert when: Anything changes
  4. Send notification immediately

I received an alert when the item was added but not when the user deleted it.

Does this have to do with the user who deleted the item (which was the user who created the item)?

Why would I not receive notification that the item was deleted?

Getting error “Object doesn’t support property or method ‘commitPopup'” when saving a new alert in SP 2010

In my SP 2010 environment, I have a html page, that has an iframe, and the iframe is the page where you create a new alert for a list. In the html page, I dynamically create the iframe and then insert some script nodes in it to run jquery in the alert page.

The problem is, when I click the save button, I get the error message

Line: 1 Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'commitPopup' 

coming from this line (which is the iframe source page)

<script type='text/javascript'>window.frameElement.commitPopup();< 

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks.
