What are some ways I can use Project and Global Verified lists?

I really haven’t played with cross-posting on different projects’ verified lists.
Or, used the Global Verified (or other three) lists.
I understand that the global list may have posts on niche-specific targets, like (e.g.) pinball machines, tulip bulbs, and lightbulbs and so would it be weird to try posting a new site that focuses on vegan food using the global list, or one of the other niche projects’ lists?
Are there any negatives to using my own verified lists?
Could it be perceived as spam if I post multiple links to different pages of the same domain on a single target?

What are some of the alternatives for not having a global state?

I watched some of Google Tech Talks and I got convinced that having a global state is such an awful thing. Now I’m not sure how the alternative should be. Suppose for example that I have a logger and a graph, and for some reason each node in the graph can log its value to the logger. Before, while having the global state, I could’ve just had a global log object and call the “log” function on the global log object from every node. But now since I don’t have a global state, I can’t think of any other solution except for having a reference to the log object inside each node. Now, if the graph is something like of only 100 nodes for example, It won’t be a such a big deal. But suppose the graph has couple of millions of nodes for example… I’m not sure whether having a reference to the log object is a good idea or not. What are some of the alternatives for not having a global object that was used by alot of alot of objects? Having a reference is one of them, but are there some other ways that would be more efficient?

Can global adversaries ‘de-anonymize’ any TOR user in a day?

Tor traffic correlation attacks by global adversaries

I know what traffic correlation attack is but I find it hard to understand this article or how it got to its conclusions about ‘de-anonymize’ ‘typical web user’ who use TOR within a day just with the ability to monitor enough web traffic. I also don’t get how dark markets and child porn still exists on onion sites if all it takes is a little bit of cooperation to de-anonymize everyone?, The article is from 2013 so the governments had a long time to do it.

At the end all what the ‘global adversaries’ can see is traffic volume and timing(that is affected by some timing noise) right? so if you are just a typical web user who just connected few times(lets say 5 times) to an average website/webpage with an average size of 700kb who said that you are one of the few TOR users who visited a website/webpage in this size 5 times around the time you did it?. I am missing something here?.

How to cache the main camera as a global variable?

I want to create a utility class that will, among other things, return a cached reference to the main camera. Is the below code correct? My concern is that I’m doing it wrong and that FindGameObjectWithTag is being called each and every time the getter is referenced.

using UnityEngine;  public static class Utils {     public static Camera MainCamera { get; } = Camera.main;  } 

Is a global nonce a bad idea?

I’m trying to build a central system that will delegate certain functionality and serve me some nice things when dealing with AJAX calls. Basically, I want to dumb the whole charade of checking parameters, making sure they’re alright, making sure the user has the right capabilities, etc. into one single system.

There is a problem with nonces however. To my understanding and just reading through it, a nonce is supposed to simply protect against CSRF. It’s a simple mechanism of generating an unique string based on who the user is, the action & the time.

Problem is that, the nonce has to always be localized to the script that’s going to pass it as the security argument when making an AJAX call. This means that the back-end cannot know how the nonce is called beforehand.

If I do:

<?php //Set Your Nonce $  ajax_nonce = wp_create_nonce( "wpdocs-special-string" ); ?>  <script type="text/javascript"> jQuery(document).ready(function($  ){     var data = {         action: 'wpdocs_action',         security: '<?php echo $  ajax_nonce; ?>',         wpdocs_string: 'Hello World!'     };     $  .post(ajaxurl, data, function(response) {         alert("Response: " + response);     }); }); </script> 

which is equivalent to wp_localize_script with the nonce as a parameter, the script will only know the generated string, not the name of the nonce which is wpdocs-special-string, therefore, my system cannot do check_ajax_referer( 'wpdocs-special-string').

What exactly would be wrong with generating a global nonce so that every AJAX request will be checked against that nonce?

Is pinning global root CA almost same as not having any certificate pinning at all?

I have seen multiple mobile applications that are pinning Global Root CA’s instead of intermediate/leaf certificates. Doesn’t this expose to the same risk as not having certificate pinning at all?

Considering the classic coffee shop attack scenario where the owner of the network has a certificate issued for his domain (*.evilcoffee.com signed by DigiCert)

Now if the mobile application is trusting any certificate issued by Digicert then you can effectively MiTM? Am I missing something?

Placement of entities, global to the app

I am working on a web app with the current website header as shown below enter image description here

From the left,

Product Selection: the app helps the user store data about multiple products. The user can switch between products using the dropdown. Once this is set, the whole app data is within that context

Attributes: The attributes listed are properties of a product. Each Product has these attributes. As soon as a product is selected, the attribute values become specific to that product.

Problem: I have an entity which is global to all products (product agnostic?). Where do I list such an entity.

Creating a separate page through settings (Help and logout become part of the settings dropdown) is the current solution in my mind. Will that be correct?

Sub-sites disappeared from Global Navigation & top navigation tab after new sites created

In our SharePoint 2010 systme, we have 50+ sub-sites that all have inherit the same navigation as our parent site. We have about 1/2 of the sites hidden. When we created 3 new sites 2 of the existing sites disappeared from the Global Navigation list and the tabs disappeared from the top link bar. We have the maximum number of dynamic items to show w/in this level of navigation set to well above the # of sub-sites we have and that matches the same on each of the sub-site levels.
Why did the existing 2 sites disappear and how do we get them back on the Global Navigation list and the tabs to reappear in the top link bar? How do we prevent this from happening again?
