firewall – Stop iOS app from accessing the internet

There are some apps on iOS that I trust with Health information. These apps are fully capable of working offline.

Is there any way to prevent specific third-party apps from accessing the internet on iOS? One possible use case would be to prevent the app from logging private data that it has access to.

For example, there may be an app which acts as a fitness dashboard and allows you to visualize your fitness data in a “dashboard” fashion. Or there may be an scanner app, or a calculator app, both of which can run offline. It would be nice to be able to safeguard data that these apps have access to, such as health data in the case of fitness dashboards, or clipboard data, in the case of other apps, by ensuring that this data can’t be sent anywhere.

8 – Error accessing Views after copying site to another server

I inherited an out of date Drupal 8 site, and have been tasked with extracting some data for import into another location. I thought I would create a View to query the data that I’m after, and then work to export it.

When I navigate to http://localhost/admin/structure/views, I get the following error:

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.</br></br><em class="placeholder">DrupalCoreEntityEntityMalformedException</em>: The &quot;view&quot; entity cannot have a URI as it does not have an ID in <em class="placeholder">DrupalCoreEntityEntityBase-&gt;toUrl()</em> (line <em class="placeholder">191</em> of <em class="placeholder">corelibDrupalCoreEntityEntityBase.php</em>).

Other pages that I have tested on the site load correctly.

I have migrated the site by copying the entire directory structure and the database to my local machine, updated settings.php to reflect the local database. I cleared caches and am able to log in and navigate to a large sample of pages successfully.

Some searching on this particular error doesn’t seem to get me too far, except to some references of other modules (not Views).


hardware – Is accessing /proc/ in Linux is a security breach?

/proc is used to interact with the kernel and is required by a lot of tooling.

It is considered safe to access, the more sensitive data (eg: /proc/(pid)/* showing per-process information) having stricter permissions.

It is possible to further restrict permissions on /prod/(pid) directories using the hidepid=n mount-time option. (see man page for details).

You can ask the provider to tweak this option to the strictest setting, but I would not call it a security breach.

plugins – WooCommerce Dashboard is accessing Public Side Code. Why?

I am separating my public and admin code via is_admin, but for some reason the public code gets executed in the WooCommerce Dashboard, by those “statistics” cards that are getting data.

I thought that maybe they’re doing some AJAX request so I tried adding wp_doing_ajax(), but that public code is still getting executed.

What’s happening?

network – Accessing Local Web Resources Requires local Suffix

On my Synology NAS I host various web based resources and sites and all my devices use the same addresses, such as:


However, for some reason only my Mac refuses to access these sites. I have to suffix the server name, such as:


So to try and get around this I read that you can setup search domains. So for the active adapter I went to Network -> Advanced -> DNS tab -> Search Domains and added a search domain with the value of local.

This hasn’t made any difference and it’s the only solution I can find online. It’s what everyone says to do.

I’ve clearly got something wrong somewhere, is there anything I’ve missed?

docker – Accessing log files within linux container in Azure App Service

This may be a simple question but I find the Azure documentation vast and a bit vague to advice would be appreciated.

So I’ve got docker container running in Azure app service. I have a linux container which is pushed to Azure container registry from our pipelines where it is then used by the web app. I can view the log stream which automatically displays the docker logs and I assume anything sent to standard out.

There are various logs files within the container on certain file paths. How can I access these logs? (Other than using ssh in Kudu to get into the container). Is there a way of mapping these file paths to one of the Azure log analytic tools?

Thanks – Please let me know if you need more information on any part of this setup.

server – Tunnel connection failure error when accessing WP site from an external network

I have a LAMP server configuration at home with wordpress. Static IP on the server and port 80 transmitted on the router to this server. Apache listens on port 80 and the virtual host configured accordingly.

It worked fine, but now when I navigate to my domain (which points to my public IP), the browser simply displays "Tunnel connection failed". Curiously, I can still access the pages of this file (eg or serve well). This only happens outdoors; on the internal LAN no problem. I have tried it from multiple devices and different browsers.

It worked well for a few weeks and just seems to have broken (no change I can think of).

Can an ISP block something?

Thanks for reading.
