How To Stop Autoplay Videos on Facebook Twitter and Other Sites 

Autoplay videos can be pretty annoying. Here is how to stop autoplay videos or ads on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and various websites in 2019. With videos becoming an extensive part of our web browsing, it’s no surprise that all the social networks are making sure you don’t miss out on any videos. While we appreciate the new video-centric features of social networks, we most certainly do not appreciate the auto playing videos. All major social media networks including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram have videos set to autoplay. It is annoying to say the least, considering there are times when we are just casually browsing on our favorite social network and all of a sudden a video starts playing. It is even more annoying when webpages play videos automatically and we scramble around searching where is the sound coming from. The autoplay videos also make sure that our limited mobile data bandwidth gets sucked in pre-loading those videos. The autoplay videos are especially a hassle when we are browsing at work, classes or at places where silence is a priority. The good news is there are ways to stop autoplay videos. Here’s how you can do it:

Google+ shuts down April 2, all data will be deleted – Ars Technica

The latest beleaguered Google product to get a death date is Google+. Google's controversial Facebook clone is shutting down on April 2. Google has been backing away from the service for years, but it gave the site a death sentence in October, after revelations of a data leak were made public. Now we have a concrete shutdown date for the service. Google's support page details exactly how the G+ shutdown will go down, and it's not just freezing posts on the site. The whole site will be taken down, and everything will be deleted. "On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts," the page reads.

How to debug Node.js in a Docker container - DEV Community

More and more teams are moving their development environments to Docker containers. It brings a lot of advantages, such as a unified environment shared between all devs, a faster onboarding process for new members, and predictable deployments. For example, in my previous article “Microservices vs Monolith architecture", I made the point that with microservices you have to use Docker, because otherwise you’re launching multiple microservices on a local machine and development becomes a huge pain. When you have even 5-10 microservices, you run them through your terminal one by one and have to make sure that you have all dependencies, db, elasticsearch, etc., installed. Alternatively, you can get it running with one command using docker-compose, a much better approach. But that approach requires you to understand Docker and to not miss the functionality or experience you had without it. One of the things to understand is how to debug within the Docker container. In this article, we will go through a few use cases related to debugging a Node.js app in a docker container. Prerequirements VS Code Docker Docker extension for VS Code

Critical Adobe Flash Bug Impacts Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS | Threatpost | The first stop for security news

Adobe issues patch for a Flash Player vulnerability that could lead to an arbitrary code execution on targeted systems. Adobe released a patch for a critical flaw on Tuesday that leaves its Flash Player vulnerable to arbitrary code execution by an adversary. Affected are versions of the Flash Player running on Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS. In tandem, a Microsoft Security Advisory was also issued for the bug (CVE-2018-15981) on Tuesday. The bug is a type “confusion” vulnerability, which is a common attack technique used against Adobe’s ActionScript Virtual Machine. “Usually, when a piece of code doesn’t verify the type of object that is passed to it, and uses it blindly without type-checking, it leads to type confusion,” according to a Microsoft description of the bug.

WordPress Flaw Opens Millions of WooCommerce Shops to Takeover | Threatpost | The first stop for security news

A file delete vulnerability in WordPress can be elevated into a remote code execution vulnerability for plugins like WooCommerce. Up to 4 million online merchants who use the popular WooCommerce WordPress plugin are vulnerable to a file deletion vulnerability that could allow a rogue “shop manager” to escalate privileges and eventually execute remote code on impacted websites. Researchers at RIPS Technologies trace the bug to an unpatched design flaw in the privilege system of WordPress which can lead to an attack. While the flaw impacts many plugins on WordPress, one of the bigger impacted plugins is WooCommerce, an open source e-commerce plugin designed for small to large-sized online merchants using WordPress. WooCommerce powers 30 percent of all online stores — more than any other platform, according to WordPress. “The vulnerability allows shop managers to delete certain files on the server and then to take over any administrator account,” Simon Scannell, security researcher with RIPS Technologies, said in a Tuesday post.
