Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 7/24/20 1:00 PM | Blog, Lockdown, Security, 2018, blog, lockdown, security
Most security features and protocols focus on prevention. Firewalls, security analyzers, and proper coding all keep hackers away. And sometimes, unfortunately, security breaches still occur. A hacker roaming the contents of your company’s server should be

Thinking About Boolean Arguments As A Code-Smell In A Legacy Codebase [+]
Kinky Solutions | 7/24/20 4:00 AM | ColdFusion, Work
Ben Nadel reflects on Boolean arguments that alter the behavior of a Function; and, how the use of these Boolean arguments in a legacy codebase is a "code-smell" that indicates that logic is living in the wrong place (perhaps because there is a missing orchestration layer)....

Over the years, the Java programming language has evolved to be more efficient and easier to use for developers.

Making Monsters with JavaScript [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/19/20 1:30 PM | javascript
A few days ago I blogged about how I had started on a Vue.js RPG game a while ago and never got around to putting more work into it. This may be hard to believe, but building games is pretty hard! I realized though that the parts I most looked forward too, the more creative parts, were things that I could work on and just stop worrying about actually finishing the game.

Copying Slack's Brilliant Virtual Scrollbar And Overflow Container In Angular 9.1.12 [+]
Kinky Solutions | 7/18/20 7:30 AM | Javascript / DHTML
Ben Nadel attempts to reimplement Slack's brilliant virtual scrollbar and overflow container In Angular 9.1.12.

Testing Vue.js Application Files That Aren't Components [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 7/17/20 5:30 PM | vuejs, javascript, serverless
Ok, before I begin, a huge disclaimer. My confidence on this particular tip is hovering around 5% or so. Alright, so some context. I'm working on a game in Vue.js. Surprise surprise. It probably won't ever finish, but I'm having some fun building small parts of it here and there. The game is an RPG and one of the first things I built was a basic dice rolling utility.

Kinky Solutions | 7/16/20 7:30 AM | ColdFusion
Ben Nadel demonstrates a strange behavior in the CFLocation tag in which the forward-slash ("/") character appears to get double-encoded if there is also an unencoded plus ("+") value in the same query-string parameter in Lucee CFML

OSGi Support is Needed to Assure Secure Code [+]
Adobe ColdFusion Blog | 7/15/20 2:00 PM | Discussion, Updates, ColdFusion, discussion, security, updates
Here is a serious question to ponder. I have been supporting the Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) at two different companies over the past five years.  The AEM and Lucee support OSGi framework over JVM which makes these applications faster (on compile) and more secure. Is there any forward  looking plans to support OSGi (and Maven). The post OSGi Support is Needed to Assure

More on today’s CF update, and the importance of securing CAR files [+]

If you saw the news today (July 14, 2020) about the new updates for CF2018 and 2016, you may have read seen the new admonition (a “strong recommendation”) from Adobe that one should be careful to “delete CAR files once they are used”. What’s that about? And why is it a concern? (And is it ever NOT a concern?) Indeed why is it a new admonition? (To be clear: the recommendatio

Why should one be careful about securing ColdFusion ARchive (CAR) files? [+]
Charlie Arehart's Blog | 7/14/20 11:00 PM | cf9, cf2016, admin, cf10, cf11, security, cf2018
You may hear (starting today) about a new admonition (a "strong recommendation") from Adobe that one should be careful to "delete CAR files once they are used". What's that about? And why is it a concern? (And is it ever NOT a concern?) Indeed why is it a new admonition? (To be clear: the recommendation should be heeded even by those using CF versions BEFORE this update and older versions like 11, 10, and so on.) The TLDR is this: If you create (or are given) a CF "CAR" (ColdFusio
