Mac OS X Lion LDAP Bug, Still Unfixed

Written on August 26, 2011 by Adam Eve

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.

Apple rolls out the iCloud beta 5 together with the Mac OS X 10.7.2 to developers for testing.

Last Saturday, Apple tapped developers to test the fifth beta version of iCloud with the first external beta of Mac OS X 10.7.2. However, the big fruit requires devs to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 to use the iCloud 5. What’s odd is that the company is yet to reveal the test build information for Mac OS X 10.7.1.

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

Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion’s iChat 6

Written on April 07, 2011 by Adam Eve

With Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, you can reach both your Yahoo and MSN chat buddies. Thanks to iChat 6!

Apple’s bundled instant messenger app, iChat 6, now adds Yahoo IM support. Unlike e-mail, the IM is partitioned into proprietary solos – like AOL, ICQ, Skype and many others – using their own systems for text and video chat. Hence, anyone who wants to exchange messages with users of different system must use a multi-protocol chat client.

But although iChat 6 only supports text chats in Yahoo IM, this builds a gateway for users to support both populations of Yahoo and MSN. In addition to this, it integrates separate chat accounts and protocols into a buddy list. It also features a coordinated login across all user-configured accounts. But don’t fuss! This feature can be disabled if you don’t want to share the same status for each IM client that you use.
