Mac OS X Lion LDAP Glitch, Still Unfixed

Mac OS X Lion's bug is still at large. Oh no!

While Apple’s iconic leader has left the building, the month-old Mac OS X Lion bug apparently hasn’t. Reports has it that a glitch enabling users to authenticate LDAP without a password has not been fixed by the company yet. Identified late last month, the LDAP or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is commonly used in business IT environments. It access such directories as corporate email lists.

H-Online said that Apple was successful in replicating the Mac OS X Lion bug. However, some users are reporting that they can still launch LDAP sessions with just a valid username alone. Others who attempt to resolve the issue have led to LDAP authentication being broken entirely. According to H-Online, the only solution for the glitch – though it is not much of one – is to “deactivate LDAP authentication for critical services.”

InfoWorld’s Ted Samson believes that Apple’s sluggish response to fix the bug may be due to the fact that LDAP is not a default setting for Mac OS X Lion. Regardless, the Cupertino-based company is definitely feeling in heat because of their vulnerabilities being targeted by cyber criminals.
