Quick reminder about security and shared flows


#1

Hi all,

Just a quick thought. We have a lot of new people in the forum now and, while I'm not suggesting that any would be malicious, we cannot rule it out.

As such, this is just a reminder that, just because someone shares a flow, it doesn't mean that it is necessarily a good idea to plonk it in your Node-RED instance without checking it carefully.

Be safe out there folk! :smile:

Never not be a little paranoid.

Looking at it after import I think is fine, what could be dangerous is to deploy.
If you just interested and looking at various solutions, do a browser refresh when finished but do not deploy


#4

Indeed, that would be absolutely fine.
