Mac OS X Lion LDAP Bug, Still Unfixed

Oh no! Mac OS Lion's LDAP glitch is still unfixed!

While Apple’s luminary leader has left the building, Mac OS X Lion’s month-old bug apparently hasn’t. Reports has it that a glitch allowing 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 to access directories like corporate email lists.

According to H-Online, 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 tried to resolve the issue have led to LDAP authentication being broken entirely. H-Online said that the only solution for the glitch – though it is not much of one – is to “deactivate LDAP authentication for critical services.”

Ted Samson of InfoWorld 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 a red dot because of their vulnerabilities being targeted by cyber criminals.

GT Academy Round Two Results Void Thanks to Cheaters

This is how cutting corners ironically lengthen an entire competition.

Records have been shattered in Gran Turismo, but in ways that aren’t tolerable by developer or any other standards. Cheaters have risen again after the second round of Sony’s Gran Turismo Academy (GT Academy) racing competition as reports state that several players have cut corners and exploited course flaws and glitches to reach impossible lap times. As a result, Sony has ultimately voided the second round results thus allowing everyone to move on to the next.

Developer Polyphony Digital has announced that they are currently in the works of fixing any other potential exploits before proceeding to the third round. The original schedule of the third round of the GT Academy competition was supposed to be on the 14th of February, but due to recent events, the competition has been delayed indefinitely.

Sony’s GT Academy competition is a virtual racing stint to give the world’s best Gran Turismo 5 players a chance to become real race drivers by using their gaming skills to win.

"We're aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3." said spokeswoman Natalie Harrison.

New Year’s day didn’t start up that good with iPhone especially with the alarm clock. Came January 1, the alarm turned out to be suffering from a glitch. According to the frustration-filled tweets on Twitter, just when the clock strikes midnight, one off alarms will cease to turn off. Sounds like the Daylight Savings Time trouble we witnessed back in November huh?

Apple sent a word with Macworld magazine that they are completely aware of the problem.

“We’re aware of an issue related to non-repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.” said spokeswoman Natalie Harrison.

It should be singing off now. We’re hoping that Apple gives consideration on the matter.

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is here, and so are the bugs, the lags, and the long queue times. Classic.

Just a few hours into World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, US servers got a bitter taste of what several months of beta testing resulted to, all that plus your usual problems whenever a new expansion comes out.

The most infamous of all problems was the Experience. Level 80 players who had the tenacity to gather and complete daily quests a day before the expansion release didn’t gain experience once they turned over the quests the following day, nice one! Blizzard was well aware of the situation and took action immediately.

A Fix for Android 2.2’s Terrible Audio Stream

Written on August 10, 2010 by Adam Eve

If your audio stream sounds like Mickey Mouse in a helium, don't blame it on the service outright. Check your mobile OS because you might be using Android 2.2. And if you are, it's not about the stream. It's all about the bug waiting to be fixed.

The latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 2.2, is likely to be a tone-deaf. The OS can make your headphones sound like a tin can whenever you tune into a streaming music services (eg. Pandora or MOG). A great music that runs fine in an older version of Android will suddenly turn muddy. Multiple number of forum threads came up with the same complaint, and blaming a bug on Google Code.
