How can a jailer prevent the Forge Cleric’s Artisan’s Blessing from being used?

I’m currently DMing a game where one of the players is playing as a Forge Cleric. As part of the story and due to some of their actions, the party is likely going to be put in jail next session. I’m wondering if there’s any way to prevent the Forge Domain cleric from simply using their Artisan’s Blessing Channel Divinity option (XGtE, p. 19) to escape.

Normally, I’d prevent the cleric from coming in contact with any metal in jail, but that’s not ideal for my campaign/setting. This player is also a stickler for the rules, so any RAW solution would be especially good. Also, this jail is run by wealthy individuals, so expensive/rare solutions are fine.

Best practices to prevent logging of LDAP credentials by intermediate apps

I am working on transitioning our project management tool (PMT) to use LDAP authentication instead of native auth that’s currently in use.

We also have some internal web based tools that interface with the PMT, using a REST based interface exposed by the PMT. Some of our internal stakeholders have a concern in regards to security of the LDAP authentication entered into these internal tools, because these tools are outsourced and developed by external companies.

The way I imagine this would work is this: 1. User “X” enters their LDAP credentials into one of our internal tools. 2. Internal tool passes these credentials on to the PMT, which then authenticates them against the LDAP server. 3. Once successfully authenticated, the internal tool is able to exchange information with the PMT.

Please note that all communication will be over TLS/SSL.

My management team have a security concern that has to do with the fact that when a user enters their LDAP credentials into an internal tool, the tool could abuse/misuse these credentials or log them into a file inadvertently, thus exposing someone’s credentials.

My question: Is there a way to prevent this scenario? Clearly, encrypting the credentials wouldn’t help because the internal tool will need them to pass on the LDAP server for authentication. So how does one make sure that the internal tool does NOT see the credentials but still be able to authenticate the internal tool against the LDAP server?

Thanks much in advance!

How to prevent Netflix from showing preview trailers on the overview?

Currently, whenever I look at the Netflix overview, it shows me trailers in the top of the page.

Also further down the page, between the category scrollers.

I find them disturbing and annoying, also sometimes they contain spoilers which I don’t like.

Is there a way to disable them? Alternatively, is there a way to inject some JavaScript (maybe using a Chrome extension?), to hide them on the page?

How to prevent an infected PC from infecting other machines on the same network

My father is pretty careless about his security and this is not new. He even said to me that in the last year he used Tor to access some links just for curiosity, because he have read about it in some news and followed a tutorial on the internet to do this.

In the last night, I used his PC and saw strangers programs running and, in his history, that he accessed some adult sites and some strangers urls too (probably from ads and pop-ups in these sites). Antivirus don’t work because he click on everything.

I spoke with him many times but nothing has effect and I’m tired of this. I have blocked all inbound connections in my PC’s firewall, so I can’t see anything suspicious, but my mother have her own PC and she is a very common user, so it’s nothing a option to install a firewall that asks about every new connection, and I don’t have time to monitora her PC all the time. Furthermore, we all have our own smartphones, so even if our PCs are protect, the smartphones don’t.

So, is there a way that I can be free of this terrible headache and protect our devices? I don’t have knowledge in networks, I even know if my worry are a relevant point, so I will appreciate a more non-technical language if it is possible.

Obs: all the devices are android or windows.

Cloud based solution to prevent DDoS attack on multiplayer game server?

I built an architecture below:


How does it work (and if it’s possible)

Assuming your game server currently runs on Node 1 and then Node 1 gets a successful DDoS attack. Your cloud system has automatically recognized big illegal traffic coming to your node, and automatically stops your server on node 1 and runs the same game instance on node 2 by moving the RAM from Node 1 to Node 2.

The problem is the game client, it knows just one IP it has to connect to, but what if you added a system to your client to detect disconnection and automatically try to move to the next node?.

Since all nodes connected to one database on a different server, that database server IP is anonymous and is only known for the nodes, so nobody really knows it’s IP to DDoS it.

Could that kind of an idea work in real life? or maybe corrected because I am really clueless about networking administrating.

When you move from Node 1 to Node 2, your system will remember all of the illegal traffic IPs and block them, it will know which of the traffic is illegal by analysing, so Node 2 will not receive connections from them anymore while Node 1 is null routing

Can you prevent being automatically added to gchat groups upon being invited?

I have been invited to a group chat that I don’t want to be in. I left the group and then was re-invited. The invitations automatically bring me into the group, complete with pop-up notifications and all.

I don’t want to block the people inviting me to the group since they are acquaintances and friends that I routinely gchat with individually, but I would prefer to have a say in whether or not I join the group. Is there a way to prevent auto-joining all groups I’m invited to?

I don’t want to be forcefully pulled into a group chat and have the notifications popping up for a conversation I don’t even have any interest in.
