Is Adobe Creative Cloud uploading files from hard drive without my permission?

I was trying to uninstall InDesign from my Windows 10 computer. To uninstall/update any of Adobe’s programs, you have to first update to the latest version of Creative Cloud, which is a hub that manages all its programs (PS, Illustrator, AfterEffects, etc). Once the update was complete, I uninstalled InDesign, but noticed that there was a small progress indicator on the top-right corner.

When I opened it, I saw that it said “File syncing” was in progress. I thought “What file syncing? I never asked to sync any files!”

enter image description here

I immediately paused the sync. Upon clicking on the settings icon, it turns out it was auto-syncing files from my entire C:/Users/[UserName]/Documents/ folder, without asking for any permission to do this! (I’ve since created an empty /Adobe subfolder so it doesn’t have anything to upload).

enter image description here

I think I stopped it before it was able to upload anything. Has Adobe been automatically uploading files from its users’ /Documents folder without their consent, or am I overreacting? If so, is there a way to blacklist all internet access to all of Adobe’s products? I don’t want the next update to reset these permissions, and having to worry about auto-syncing in future versions!

Securing media uploading to the cloud from reverse engineering

I own an RPG multiplayer game written in Java, where players can fight each other in the game.

Recently I planned to invent a new feature, where the last 15 seconds of your fight and the “knockout” will be saved and a gif will be created of the fight’s ending and automatically uploaded and can be linked to your account and viewed on the game’s website gallery.

Strategy I planned to use:

  1. Server sends a start-recording packet to the client to start recording the graphics buffer
  2. Client will clear the buffer and only keep the latest 15 seconds (X frames) of the current fight.
  3. When the fight ends, server sends stop-recording packet, this packet will contain a pre-signed URL generated by the server in which the client will use to upload the gif that the client will create in this step. the presigned URL will have the user’s ID encoded so that way it is linked, and a record will be created in the database aswell on the presign or on upload callback.

Might use AWS S3 as my storage.

What is the issue?

People can reverse-engineer my client, and can basically start fights and upload any gifs that they would want to, pornographic and unrelated content.

Is there a way, besides image-processing to solve this issue\?

When I am uploading a Word Document in Document Library – Custom Columns values are getting blank

I have uploaded the Word document on SharePoint Document Library (Modern Site), my Library has following columns:

  • Title

  • ADDS

  • LBB

  • Category

Step 1: After uploading the file for the first time, I have filled the values in these columns on SharePoint.

Step 2: Again, I have uploaded the same file, now above columns values got blank.

Issue with Title > I can understand this…. Title is MS Word property as well and it will be overwritten (As per this – Document Properties not carry to new version).

But why my other custom columns values are getting blank???

Note: This issue is coming only for MS Office files (DOC, PPT, XLS, etc.). However it’s working as expected for other file formats – .pdf, .jpg, .zip, etc

Attachement Corrupted in sharepoint when uploading using REST API

The below code is to upload a single attachment to SharePoint list, I have been working on this for a week now and the file which is uploaded ends up being corrupted. Please can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

onFileSelected(event) {   this.filename = event.target.files[0].name;   this.selectedFile = event.target.files[0];   const reader = new FileReader();   reader.onload = (e) => {     this.upload(reader.result, this.filename);   };   reader.onerror = (e) => {     alert(reader.error);   };   reader.readAsArrayBuffer(this.selectedFile); }   upload(aB, fileName) {   console.log(aB, 'Array Buffer');   const today = new Date();   var file = 'evidence-Jquery' + today.getFullYear() + '-' + today.getMonth() + '-' + today.getHours() + '-' + today     .getMinutes() + '-' + today.getSeconds() + '.png';    // var urll = `https://$  {window.location.host}/sites/spec-dev/portal/_api/web/lists/getByTitle('Reviews')   // /Items('356')/AttachmentFiles/add(FileName='" + fileName + "')`;    const listUrl = `_api/Web/Lists/getByTitle('Reviews')`;   console.log(this.all[0].ID, 'ID');   let url = this.getappUrl() + listUrl + `/Items('356')/AttachmentFiles/add(FileName='$  {fileName}')`;   url = this.targetUrl(url, this.hostUrl);   const h = new HttpHeaders({     Accept: 'application/json;odata=verbose'   });    this.httpClient.post     (`$  {this.getappUrl()}/_api/contextinfo`, {}, { headers: h })     .toPromise().then(       (res: any) => {         const dig = res.d.GetContextWebInformation.FormDigestValue;         console.log(dig, 'Digest valuee');          const body = {           __metadata: { type: 'SP.Data.ReviewsListItem' }, // table name           data: aB,           processData: false           // 'Title':'test', //values           // 'Test':'test'         };          const headers = new HttpHeaders({           Accpet: 'application/json;odata=verbose',           'X-RequestDigest': dig,           'content-length': aB.byteLength         });          const option = { headers };         this.httpClient.post(url, aB, option).subscribe(r => {           console.log(r, 'success');           this.spinner.hide();           this.toasterService.success('Evidence Submitted Succesfully', 'Hooray!!', { positionClass: 'toast-top-right' });         }         );       }); } 

The post request is a 200 but the image uploaded is corrupted.

Fix 401 Unauthorized Exception uploading file to SharePoint 2010

I have a WCF service hosted in IIS on Domain 1. This service is accepting a request to upload a file, and then uploading the file to a SharePoint 2010 Server on Domain 2, using the client object model.

Everything works fine when I hardcode the username, password & domain using:

context.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(login, password, domain); 

However, due to the compliance & security we cannot do this in our company. We need to use integrated security if possible. I have tried setting the credentials to both

context.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials; context.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials; 

But neither appear to work, we receive the error

System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized. at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SPWebRequestExecutor.Execute() at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext.GetFormDigestInfoPrivate() at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext.EnsureFormDigest() at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext.ExecuteQuery()

Can someone provide any tips on how to fix this? Or tips that might lead us to the resolution, logs to check etc. I am not the developer of the SharePoint site, but can chase them down. I have gone through many questions/answers here and none seem to help us.
