Does Avada theme, Fusion Builder or Toolset plugin store some data remotely?

I have a new task to try to speed up one WordPress site. In order to do so, I copied the existing site to my company’s dev server. The problem is pages do not look quite the same. The code and DB are totally the same. After search I found that some theme settings and some fusion and toolset settings are not the same on prod and dev server. For example header width, fonts, custom.css is empty on dev (one that belongs to theme and can be edited from backend), etc…

What can that be? Do some of these components store data remotely and because of diff domain, I can not get that or I miss something else?

Remotely exploit Linux kernel with CVE-2017-18017?

I have set up a server running Linux Kernel 4.4. How can I exploit this, preferably not a DoS attack? I have opened port 80(https), however I would rather do it in an elegant fashion so I can actually learn something instead of just mindlessly running slowloris. A specific vulnerability I have looked into is:

How to remotely save subsite as a template with powershell on Project Server 2019 on-prem

I have a project subsite on my Project Server 2019 on-prem, which I want to save as a template to make it a standard for all projects that will be created. Via my Browser the process is very straight forward, but I need to create the template automatically as part of the deployment process. So far I have not found a way to do this remotely.

It there a way to remotely save a site as a template? If yes, how does it work?

gnome-Terminal start only when logged in remotely using microsoft remote log in

I am totally new to linux. I have got a linux machine with Ubuntu 18.04 installed. Since I wanted to work remotely, I tried to set up google chrome RDP on it. However, it didn’t work. Unfortunately, after that, even after I removed chrome remote desktop, I cannot start the gnome-terminal (I can start the xterm though). However, when I am logged in from another machine using Microsoft Remote Desktop, I could open the gnome-terminal fine. I am not sure what is going on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Install Debian on a dedicated server remotely without sending any clear-text credentials

As stated in the title, are there any existing best practices to install Debian on a remote server, without sending clear text passwords over the link?

For example – a lot of dedicated server providers will give their customers direct access to the KVM of the supermicro board. This gives them a lot of choices – for example, I can mount any local ISO image as if it were in the CD drive.

However, installing Debian would be a no-go, because I’ll have to type in the root password during the setup, which an eavesdropper can read too.

My guess would be to create a pre-made installation image, with the SSH public key already installed. You would no longer rely on what’s on the KVM screen, but rather connect to the SSH service immediately. You’d still open yourself up to man in the middle attacks, since someone eavesdropping on the KVM connection could copy the public key and the hostkey, and intercept the connection, but I imagine it would be difficult to do in a timely fashion.

Is there any better way I am missing?

If Yubikey with 2 factor auth is used on Ubuntu 19.04 can the OS be hacked via bluetooth? Or any other way remotely?

I have had issues with Ubuntu being hacked, I recently added a Yubikey with 2-factor authentication and encrypted the OS via LUKs. Is there any way that a hacker could breach my system via Bluetooth components on my system (mouse, etc). How safe is it?
