Security of next generation firewall

In recent years there’s been a number of IndieGoGo or KickStarter projects for smart device protection, or next-generation firewalls. Some examples are: Anonabox, Cujo, Dojo, Firewalla, Keezel, RATtrap, Vektor

Now the established network/router manufacturers are getting in on it with their own new products: Avira Safe Things, Cisco Meraki, Eero, Fortinet FortiWiFi, F-Secure Sense, Google WiFi, Linksys Velop, Luma Surround WiFi, Ubiquiti Unifi Security Router, Securify Almond3…

While I can find ‘reviews’ on many of these, they all have one thing in common, the reviewers are repeating the features the original marketers listed. There is a lot of hype and marketing, but I’ve been unable to find substantial articles of proven performance.

Has anyone found/done any real-world testing? Do the one wire products reliably filter all packets to/from all devices, or do they miss large chunks of traffic? Do these things really protect any better than conventional routers? Are they more frequently patched for vulnerabilities?

Thumbnail generation fails on some PDFs

I’ve noticed that some PDFs won’t show a thumbnail no matter what I do; I’ve tried purging and installing the snap of Evince, only to find that it would result in no thumbnails being generated for PDFs at all.

Most of my PDFs were acquired from Humble Bundles, and some collections have one or two files without thumbnails, others have as many as eight files with no thumbnails; I also tried re-downloading the files, but that didn’t help.

Another file without a thumbnail was a fillable PDF that I had edited, but a different fillable PDF that I had also edited did have one.

I’ve tried using different thumbnailers, deleting old thumbnails… to no avail.

It would seem they also only fail to generate a thumbnail under Ubuntu 18.04, as far as I can tell, anyway.

It’s not critical, as I can still read the PDFs, but it’s annoying that they don’t have thumbnails like the others.

Does anyone know a solution to this?

Open Engineer Mode and run other hidden codes on Moto G 3rd generation device?

I’m running LineageOS ROM on my Moto G 3rd generation smartphone and recently I wanted to run some hidden codes of Android like *#06# for IMEI and so on.
However, none of this ones works correctly on my phone:

  1. Phone information

  2. IMEI Info

  3. Calendar

  4. Debug info for Google Play Service

  5. Access Google Partner Setup

  6. Engineering Mode

The IMEI closes the dealer/phone app, while the engineer/service mode codes (the one in which I’m more interested) don’t activate anything. Let’s say that the dealer interprets correctly the code but doesn’t run this tasks.

So knowing this, I would like to know if there is a way of looking if the relative services are on my phone? If it isn’t the case, how I can add them or run from PC with USB maybe? Are the secret codes dependent on the ROM like I imagine or not?


I tried hidden codes of other manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, … too but no result obviously.

Possible to avoid cost increase in move to GCP MySQL Second Generation?

I was using pay-per-use with MySQL first generation. It was a website with all I was using pay-per-use with MySQL first generation. It’s for a website with all pages cached in memcached and only evicted from cache when I update content. Writes to SQL can also occur if somebody register for newsletter or similar (happens ~10 times/month). I was getting away for free with the pay-per-use model, but that model is not available in the second generation.

As far as I can understand, there is no way to get below $ 7 per month now with the new model. Is that correctly understood?

Or is there an API where I can turn on/off the SQL instance when I receive a registration or update content? It feels strange to pay so much for a service I use for less than a second 10-100 times per month.

SharePoint 2013 document generation -Can’t open document

I’m trying to use a document library to generate documents.

I have created 6 content types (as I need multiple templates) and associated document templates to them. I read somewhere I should be using .docx instead of .dotx as a template.

But I can’t get it to work. I get this error:

enter image description here

We’re sorry. We can’t open DocumentName.docx because we found a problem with its contents.”

Generation Error for Source Class

I’m trying to compile etc. after recently upgrading to Magento 2.3.1.

I use this command:

$   php -dmemory_limit=-1 bin/magento setup:di:compile 

which returns this error:

Source class “\Magento\Elasticsearch6\Model\Adapter\FieldMapper\ProductField” for “Magento\Elasticsearch6\Model\Adapter\FieldMapper\ProductFieldMapper” generation does not exist.

But I don’t get why it’s not being generated, here are my file permissions:

so generated/ has full permissions… how do I go about debugging this and actually getting this to generate so I can actually finish my upgrade?
