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.

Don't know what to do with your Nintendo 3DS if you experience any system freezes? Neither does Nintendo! That's why they're asking you to return it to them.

It’s been barely a week since the Nintendo 3DS rolled into North American and other non-Japanese shores, and several gamers have already been experiencing system freezes on the console. These system freezes entail in either a blank white or black screen, and an inability to turn the power off unless you remove the batteries.

Nintendo has already issued a statement at Nintendo.com’s Troubleshooting page, advising Nintendo 3DS owners with similar malfunctions to return their consoles to Nintendo for repair (or more likely a replacement).

Nintendo America has yet to share a word regarding the matter, while Nintendo UK advises 3DS owners to try the latest system update first before contacting the Nintendo Customer Service Center. There are no reports of any system errors from Nintendo 3DS owners in Japan, so it looks like something went wrong when they were making the international edition of the handheld.

Test your might one more time, because Mortal Kombat is coming with Kenshi and Scarlet in the game's first DLC.

The Mortal Kombat reboot hasn’t even been released yet, but gamers were already treated with two new characters that are set to be on the downloadable content after title’s launch. Enter the fray, Kenshi and Scarlet!

The sword-wielding warrior – Kenshi – is making another appearance, becoming one of the characters to have ever appeared in almost every single incarnation of Mortal Kombat.

Scarlet on the other hand, has a different story. The seemingly sister of Jade, Kitana and Milena was once a glitch at the original Mortal Kombat arcade game where the aforementioned three sisters came out in blood red costumes. Players thought that it was a hidden character in the game despite having the same moves of their originally chosen fighter. But according to Netherrealm’s Hans Lo, Scarlet is now for real.

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.
