macos – Cant update/install homebrew packages with Kaspersky Security Software (Self Signed Cert)

At work we have Kaspersky installed. Kaspersky installs a self signed cert so it can decrypt/inspect web traffic. Chrome and everything works fine except for homebrew. When i try to install/update software this is what i see:

brew install yarn
==> Downloading
######################################################################## 100.0%##O#- #
curl: (35) error:1400443E:SSL routines:CONNECT_CR_SRVR_HELLO:tlsv1 alert inappropriate fallback
Error: Failed to download resource "yarn"
Download failed:

Since it appears its a curl issue i tried to create a .curlrc file with insecure but that doesn’t help at all. I’m able to call one of our IT admins over and temporarily turn off web anti-virus but that is starting to be a major pain every time i install/update software. They aren’t, of course, going to allow me to permantely turn it off. I have this issue on no matter what mac i use (one is a m1 based mac and the other is an intel based mac).

tls – Compression and Encryption against security issues

I’m having a hard time knowing whether the following setup is vulnerable to CRIME/BREACH type attacks (which target HTTPS).

I am running a Wireguard VPN that tunnels VXLAN protocol, using ChachaPoly20 encryption.
I would like to add CPU cheap compression (LZ4) on the VXLAN frames (RFC3173 likewise).

Would the fact that I add LZ4 on my VXLAN frames make the encrypted VPN tunnel vulnerable to a potential attacker?

Side question: Since CRIME and BREACH target HTTPS specifically, are there any more generic versions of those attacks?

security – Sanitizing comments or escaping comment_text()

After thinking about this a little bit, I guess that the proper way to ensure that your comments are properly escaped, is by doing something like this:

$the_comment = get_comment_text();
echo '<p>' . esc_html($the_comment) . '</p>'; 

Instead of simply using the function like this:


Why even have these handy functions in the first place, if they aren’t properly escaped? The comment_author(); function IS, yet this is not for some reason?

Perhaps I am missing something?

php – How to add API security keys into JS of wordpress securely

I am using wp_localize_script() to add variables from my config.ini file to my inline JS code (inside HTML block element of Elementor) (Please see this for reference)

But this method is unsafe to add Security keys because these variables can be accessed via console. How can I add API security keys to my JS code securely?
Is there any way I can achieve this? Thank you in advance.

Explicit vs transparent proxy – Information Security Stack Exchange

As far as I have understood it:

  • An explicit proxy challenges the user/application within his session.
  • NGFW (transparent proxy) and SSO/identity-based solutions are just letting everything pass that is using the current IP address of the user.

I agree the latter is flexible with regard to roaming users (VPN, Wifi and whatnot) but IMHO similar to machine/IP-based authentication, i.e. a step back from actually challenging the individual application for access. (Note: if you use a captive portal, non-interactive apps will have a hard time authenticating.)

The transparent proxy would let all traffic from your machine go directly to the URL filter, including the potential malware. Whereas in the explicit scenario the malware would need to obtain the user’s credentials, parse the PAC file or somehow else determine the location of the proxy to use etc. Might be considered security through obscurity, still more hurdles can’t hurt…
Additionally, a transparent proxy would require recursive DNS access to the Internet, meaning DNS security would need to be implemented. Whereas when using an explicit proxy, the client needs no DNS access at all, the proxy itself would perform a DNS request once the URL filtering/categorization or any other mechanism has allowed access.

Somehow I fail to see where transparent approach would provide more security than explicit.
The more modern approach (NGFW/transparent) seem to rely more and more on blacklisting and heuristics, while we learned that actual security only comes from denying everything that we do not know i.e. whitelisting. I agree that this is difficult in today’s Internet though.
So which one is more secure, transparent or explicit, or does it only depend on the individual definition of security/risk?

Orangedox – Saving the page avoids the security

I’m testing the service. I uploaded a PDF document that I don’t want to be downloaded or printed. The document is at with password 12345
It works fine inside the browser, but if I go to File->Save page, the browser downloads all the content and the user can view and print the content (because the document is saved as images).

Is there any more secure option or simply doing this people can avoid you secure service?
