Mac OS X Lion LDAP Glitch, Still Unfixed

Written on August 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

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.

Safari on Mac OS X Lion Shows Font Glitches

Written on August 08, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Safari on Apple's Mac OS X Lion is showing font glitches on various sites. Read on to learn the solution.

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.

Apple Releases iCloud Beta 5 and Mac OS X 10.7.2 Test Build

Written on July 25, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Apple releases the fifth beta version of iCloud and Mac OS X 10.7.2 test build, but to address glitches.

Last Saturday, Apple rolls out the fifth beta version of iCloud with the initial external beta of Mac OS X 10.7.2 for testing. However, the big fruit necessitates developers to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 to use the iCloud beta 5. The move is quite odd since the company is yet to reveal the test build information for Mac OS X 10.7.1.

According to people familiar with the OS X 10.7.2 release, the operating system will not address the glitches found in the market release of OX S Lion last Wednesday. It is also reported that the company will run a separate beta test for 10.7.1 in the coming days or weeks.

Mac OS X Lion’s Safari Includes Do-not-track Tool

Written on April 14, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

After a vulnerability was caught, Apple's Mac OS X Lion now includes a do-not-track tool for its Safari web browser.

With the exception of Google, Apple has joined the makers of major web browsers to support the do-not-track feature. This feature sends a message to websites and advertising networks requesting not to track users. However, this tool requires cooperation from marketers and website owners to function properly.

The do-not-track tool, backed by Mozilla, has not yet been included in Mac OS X Lion’s pre-release version of Safari as a preference option. However, it can be activated from the Develop contextual menu.
