Xss filter backslash

Is there any way to avoid backslash \ encoding in the response? If trying to escape double quotes encodes me (“) with (\”) and also escapes () with (\), is there any way to avoid this?

I can’t find information on how to avoid this, am I wasting my time? Does this mean that xss injection at an input value is not possible?

Is there any hook or filter that user data, specifically email address, is passed through on new order creation?

I want to create a function/module that corrects common email typos on new orders.

For example to auto correct gmail.con, hotmail.con to .com, and many many more common typos.

Is there any hook or filter that user data, specifically email address, is passed through on new order creation, so that we can modify it before it’s inserted into the database?

Extended events filter not working

When I create an Extended Events session with filtering for username, I get no results.

If I remove the filter, I get results, including ones that should match the filter.

The user is a SQL Login.

This query returns nothing:

CREATE EVENT SESSION [p] ON SERVER ADD EVENT sqlserver.rpc_starting(   ACTION(package0.event_sequence,sqlserver.nt_username,sqlserver.server_principal_name,sqlserver.session_id,sqlserver.username)     WHERE ([package0].[equal_boolean]([sqlserver].[is_system],(0)))     AND (([sqlserver].[server_principal_name]=N'MySQLUserName'))), ADD EVENT sqlserver.sql_batch_starting(     ACTION(package0.event_sequence,sqlserver.nt_username,sqlserver.server_principal_name,sqlserver.session_id,sqlserver.username)     WHERE ([package0].[equal_boolean]([sqlserver].[is_system],(0)))     AND (([sqlserver].[server_principal_name]=N'MySQLUserName'))) ADD TARGET package0.ring_buffer WITH (MAX_MEMORY=8192 KB,EVENT_RETENTION_MODE=ALLOW_SINGLE_EVENT_LOSS,MAX_DISPATCH_LATENCY=5 SECONDS,MAX_EVENT_SIZE=0 KB,MEMORY_PARTITION_MODE=PER_CPU,TRACK_CAUSALITY=ON,STARTUP_STATE=OFF) GO 

This query returns results that should have been in the original results:

CREATE EVENT SESSION [p] ON SERVER ADD EVENT sqlserver.rpc_starting(     ACTION(package0.event_sequence,sqlserver.nt_username,sqlserver.server_principal_name,sqlserver.session_id,sqlserver.username)     WHERE ([package0].[equal_boolean]([sqlserver].[is_system],(0)))), ADD EVENT sqlserver.sql_batch_starting(     ACTION(package0.event_sequence,sqlserver.nt_username,sqlserver.server_principal_name,sqlserver.session_id,sqlserver.username)     WHERE ([package0].[equal_boolean]([sqlserver].[is_system],(0)))) ADD TARGET package0.ring_buffer WITH (MAX_MEMORY=8192 KB,EVENT_RETENTION_MODE=ALLOW_SINGLE_EVENT_LOSS,MAX_DISPATCH_LATENCY=5 SECONDS,MAX_EVENT_SIZE=0 KB,MEMORY_PARTITION_MODE=PER_CPU,TRACK_CAUSALITY=ON,STARTUP_STATE=OFF) GO 

xss filter bypass & [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • Bypassing HTML encoding [closed] 1 answer

i’ve been trying to bypass an xss filtering system
but i failed to exploit it ,
i’ve searched alot but couldn’t find anything that works
so i thought i should ask u guys
i’ve entered all the characters i could find (on my keyboard)
here is the list:

<>?/\;:'"!@$  %^&*()-_=+`~# 

and here is the result in html :

<span id="search-term">&lt;&gt;?/\;:'"!@$  %^&amp;*()-_=+`~</span> 

as you can see only these characters are being escaped < > &
looks kinda easy to exploit but when you dig into it and actually try to
exploit it you’ll find out that its not as easy as you think .
any idea how to bypass this monster ?

Remove filter from WordPress Plugin

I am using a plugin called that causes all of distributed posts to have a rel=canonical back to the source. I reached out to the developers and they told me the following:

By default, canonical URL of distributed post will point to original content, which corresponds to SEO best practices. This can be overridden by extending Distributor with custom code and removing Distributor’s default front end canonical URL filtering (look for ‘get_canonical_url’ and ‘wpseo_canonical’).

Here is their code:

public static function canonicalize_front_end() {     add_filter( 'get_canonical_url', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'canonical_url' ), 10, 2 );     add_filter( 'wpseo_canonical', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'wpseo_canonical_url' ) );     add_filter( 'wpseo_opengraph_url', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'wpseo_og_url' ) );     add_filter( 'the_author', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'the_author_distributed' ) );     add_filter( 'author_link', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'author_posts_url_distributed' ), 10, 3 ); } 

I went into my child theme functions.php file and added the following:

  remove_filter( 'get_canonical_url', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'canonical_url' ), 10, 2 );   remove_filter( 'wpseo_canonical', array( '\Distributor\InternalConnections\NetworkSiteConnection', 'wpseo_canonical_url' ) ); 

It doesn’t seem to work for me. Any thoughts?

What’s the correct algorithm to filter accumulating string concatenations?

I have a function that is receiving messages with the following pattern:

Example of accumulating strings

(In this picture, “string” and “message” are synonymous.)

I’m only interested in the largest messages, such as these:

Largest filtered accumulated strings

over a particular window.

Is there an algorithm that can appropriately filter the messages in the desired manner over a specified window?

What is the best way for user to use a filter

Good day. I want to get criticism of our decision. We have a system in which our user can create, store and manage metadata (we call it an object card) of various intellectual property objects (music, video, etc.), as well as, in particular, establish a hierarchical relationship of objects between various objects. To search for objects, a special filter is used in which our user can specify keywords, as well as indicate where exactly these words are to be searched (in object title, in object authors, in object copyright holders, etc., or generally everywhere – in all fields). You can watch the process of searching and choosing a relationship between various objects on the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BnYm1fOeIw In this example, our user searches for the object “We will rock you” in all fields of the object card, and then indicates that it searches only in object title. In the process of entering characters, the system immediately displays the found objects.

Please rate, in your opinion, convenience of this interface in terms of finding a suitable object for establishing a relationship.

Configure a Google Analytics filter for blog posts when URLs are mixed with other content

I have a WordPress site with a blog section but also a lot of other content, that is not directly related to the blog. Now I want to use Google Analytics and only see the blog traffic, meaning users that click on blog posts.

I know there are ways to filter this, if the blog posts reside in a subfolder, like example.com/blog/my-blog-post, but on my site the link structure doesn’t have that. It’s like this: example.com/my-blog-post

What would be a good way to filter that traffic in Google Analytics? It should also work for any future published posts. I have the Google Tag Manager connected, maybe that might provide a viable option?

Load more and filter (not necessarily in this order)

The problem exposing might seems trivial to you. It still isn’t clear for me which solution to choose.

Saying that you have a input text where you can type anything. Beneath it a list of ten element and a load more button. Once the user clicks on “load more”, ten more elements are added to the list.

My question is, when typing a text to filter, if there is 100 potentials results in the database, should we show the 10 first and a load more button or 20 ? since the user already clicked once on load more, we could expect him to want it to stay as is.

Thanks,
