Got it. Thanks for taking the time to explain that.

comment How can I prevent my database from being compromised if my CakePHP app is compromised?
@AJ I'm wondering if you could clarify something about user based encryption for me. I'm considering it for a project. If the attacker has compromised the app server, couldn't they modify the code to wait till the user logs in and then transmit the decrypted keys to the attacker? At some point the app will have access to the decrypted data right? Wouldn't that make all the user based encryption pointless? What am I missing?

comment How to validate and parse JWT token using Google's JWK
Thanks again for the help. I found a nice PHP JWT library that seems to support the modulus and exponent key format, so I think changing to that will be the path of least resistance.

comment How to validate and parse JWT token using Google's JWK
Thanks, I'm still new to cryptography, so I did not have the vocabulary I needed. Would you recommend I switch endpoints or use a different JWT library that can handle the format provided at the jwks_uri endpoint?

comment Contact Form 7 sometimes doesn't work
Good job debugging that. I think you have your answer right there. Your SMTP server has a sending quota (probably an anti-spam feature), and you've run into it. That also explains why the problem is intermittent (it will work until the quota is reached). The only solution I can see here is to find another SMTP server to use with a higher quota or find a way to get your quota lifted. You might also want to look into how many messages your form is sending. Unless it's a lot, it's odd that you would be hitting a quota. Maybe some spammer is abusing your form?

It looks like the data method sends the message to the SMTP server. Checkout the source. My guess is your server doesn't like something about the message. I would go through the data function and find exactly where it's failing.

comment Contact Form 7 sometimes doesn't work
Unless you've configured WordPress to use an SMTP server to send mail, I believe wp_mail is just a wrapper around PHP's built in mail function. So, if that returns false (maybe the server doesn't like sending unauthenticated messages?), then wp_mail will return false too. Maybe run some tests with the mail function?

comment Strange behavior with keyboard shortcuts on MS Access Form
I checked the macros (see update on question), and that doesn't seem to be it. Any other ideas?

Yes, it is (abundantly) clear now. Thanks. I don't remember tying any macros to keyboard shortcuts, but I'll double check anyway.
