Mac OS X Lion LDAP Glitch, Still Unfixed

Written on August 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

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.

After Apple’s release of Mac OS X Lion, there came a report that fonts on websites were shown incorrectly with the OS’ Safari web browser. A couple of letter appear as square blocks with letter ‘A’ inside. While this issue might be limited to a number of websites, observers indicated that there may be a problem with the rendering of a specific styling code using the Mac OS X Lion.

The observers also pointed out that there is a possible clash between the system fonts in the said OS. That said, users are advised to clear up their system cache or validate their fonts through the Font Book app. To check if their general maintenance procedure worked, users are advised to reboot their system and revisit the website they’re having font issues with.

Apple’s Font Book app can be used to manage Mac OS X Lion’s system fonts for any possible conflicts. Once the app is launched and the fonts were validated, users will see if any problems occurred in relation to the fonts.

"This is the kind of problems that we need to fix naturally and look into, but that's the thing introducing prone brings these kinds of problems." --- Karl Magnus Troedsson, DICE General Manager

In an interview on Games.on.net, DICE’s General Manager – Karl Magnus Troedsson – admitted that reintroducing the Prone Mechanic raises the issues on snipers laying down on the grass and what it entails.

“It was hard to ignore the outcry from the community… the return of jets and the return of prone is definitely we have listened to the community.

Basically it comes down to we wanted to bring it back (going prone), but we’d also known that there’s a lot of hassle that comes with something like that both visually quality wise but also balancing.

This is the kind of problems that we need to fix naturally and look into, but that’s the thing introducing prone brings these kinds of problems”

When asked if DICE already have a solution in Battlefield 3’s glitch, the general manager said that they don’t have one yet. However, Karl Magnus Troedsson also added that he’s not the right man to answer that question.

Battlefield 3 is set for a release this fall, and let’s just hope that all will be well by that time.
