Mac Security: Firmware Updates In Mac OS X 10.4.6

Apple have released two articles regarding an update to the firmware in 
BOTH EFI using Macs (Macintels) AND OpenFirmware using Macs (PPCs). 
These firmware updates are part of the Mac OS X 10.4.6 update. They 
result in the following:

- EFI Macs will boot a second time after the 10.4.6 update is installed.

- OF Macs will boot a second AND third time after the 10.4.5 update is 
installed.

So, when you get these extra reboots, don't worry. You are not on 
Windows. These are just firmware updates.

Why the updates? To provide better security when using firmware 
passwords.

Here are the two relevant announcements. 
- The first is the AppleCare article. It is extremely and unnecessarily 
vague. If this is all we had to read we would be very confused. 
Thankfully I have been provided with further information:
- The second was sent out to Apple's security mail list. It provides a 
complete explanation.

I do not understand how Intel-based Macs can "support the firmware
password feature".

In order to support that feature, a user would have to be able to set a
firmware password in the first place, on an Intel-based Mac.

That can not be done, according to the posters in another very long
thread in this NG.

According to those posters, Intel-based Macs use EFI instead of the
standard so-called "Open Firmware" of PPC Macs.

According to those posters, there is no way to "set" a firmware
password on the new Intel-based Macs.

What is your opinion about all this?

Very Confusing to me,

Mark-

I would bet that you can set a password in EFI and Apple is just referring
to that password in relation to their Intel products.

Agreed. I too had read that EFI was not going to allow a firmware 
password. But apparently it does now!

I will dig around for more details on the subject, if there is any, and 
post.

I still don't understand the daily security updates on a server that 
the Mac Jihad claim is 100% secure.
Why would a 100% secure OS need a security update ever?

Is it even possible to get a virus on any OS? Has anyone actually EVER 
seen a virus on any computer before? One that actually does something? 
Just one? Anyone gotta a screenshot? Didn't think so.

This creature must have slipped in from some other dimension. In my 
dimension there is no such thing as perfect security.

As for Jihad, who are attempting to do the killing around here? Not the 
Mac advocates. The computer Jihad I have to put up with every day comes 
at me from ignorant Windows users.

yawn

I saw a Mac worm a couple times. It messed up fonts on machines at a 
couple publishing businesses I was supporting. The caught it from an 
images disk that had not been scanned before distribution. And I would 
take a screenshot why? The thing was a file. The only way you knew there 
was damage was by the funky results when you used a damaged font or you 
ran a font checker on it.

Retard, retard, retard.

Meanwhile, go visit the McAfee site and visit their museum of Windows 
Malware. It will take you days, more like weeks, to read about them all.

Setting retards aside, I think it is important for Mac users to keep up 
on Mac security. Expect me to post my 'Mac Security:' notes every week 
to help in this effort.

Are Mac OS X 10.5.8's iLife programs safe to use in Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x?
Hi. Someone told me that Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x do not come with iLife like the older Mac OS X versions (e.g., 10.5.x). I did not know this! Since my client uses iPhoto that came preinstalled on his old 2008 MacBook Pro's Mac OS X 10.5.x (10.5.8 right now), can he use the old one from 10.5.8? Or will he need a third party replacement (needs to import/copy the old image files) or buy a new iPhoto version for his photo(graph)s?

Does an app run Mac O X 10.4 when it has been built on Mac OS 10. 3+
Hello. I don't have Mac OS X 10.4 yet, my application is built on Mac OS X 10.3.9, does The application can run properly on Mac OS 10.4 ? Thanks ming --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: wx-users-unsubscribe@lists.wxwidgets.org For additional commands, e-mail: wx-users-help@lists.wxwidgets.org Hi Ming, Yes, almost everything should work without modification.

DOC's research efforts continue to march on as they should, while commercial product efforts are best served by sticking with a version of ACE over time. Companies such as Riverace can make a 5.3-base version work on Mac OS X Tiger, for instance, as well as make sure that when your product is ready for an upgrade, the new version of ACE won't surprise you. I'd be happy to discuss further how we can help you and your architects - we don't want any heads to explode :-) -Steve -- Steve Huston, Riverace Corporation Helping you succeed with ACE See http://www.riverace.com/support.htm ...

In attempting to install gnuplot 4.2.2 on a Mac G4 running Mac OS X v. 4.2.2, I got several error messages before the installation failed. The error messages asked that I report these messages to the gnuplot lists, so the excerpt below contains the transcript of the installation. Any suggestions as to how to install gnuplot 4.2.2?

Mac Security: MOSX 10.4.9, Security Update 003, iPhoto 6.0.6
This is so kewl. Apple has gotten serious (with a bit of nudging) about patching vulnerabilities and just posted the biggest list of security vulnerability fixes in its history. Links to read about the updates are below. My friend Jesper just installed them with no problems resulting. But you might want to hang on a day or two until MacFixIt have collected user experience reports. Remember that most problems people have when installing updates are due to pre-existing problems on their computers. Therefore, be sure to repair your boot drive and repair your permissions before installat...

Dear All, I've just released the newest version of Mac Graphviz, featuring shapefile support and enhanced zoom. http://www.pixelglow.com/graphviz/ Shapefiles supported include PDF, EPS, PS, JPEG, PNG and all Quicktime formats. Either specify an absolute or relative (to working directory) file path, or a URL using the shapefile attribute.

Added intelligent window zooming [NRi]. Added shapefile support. Added UTF-8 support [RSc]. Added cvtgxl, gvpack and gvpr tools [BSw]. Fixed page setup then close unexpectedly invoking save dialog [PRo]. HTML-like labels now work on 10.2 (use embedded expat instead of libxml2). Improved internal frameworks (added headers, consolidated dylibs). Tracked main build of 23 June. Graphviz is still free, but I'm now accepting donations for it. Enjoy!

Hi all, It's been a busy week or two at Pixelglow Software. Here's a brand new version of Graphviz, all spit and polish now. You'll enjoy the integrated color and font panel support, hand cursor panning and remembered settings. And everyone's most asked for -- a single click on the Edit tool will now bring up the DOT code for you to edit, and of course when you save it the graph automatically re-renders. http://www.pixelglow.com/graphviz/download/ Here's the lowdown: Added edit, render and stop toolbar items [PCh]. Added integrated font and color fields and panels. Added hand cursor panning [AM]. Added autocomplete for most fields [NRi]. Added support for user defaults ("Remember Settings" menu command, command line arguments to GUI) [JSc, RPa]. Fixed click on popup menu unexpectedly selecting "..." [AM]. Fixed small zooms sometimes preventing full scrolling [DJu]. Fixed allowing fonts starting with "." to be selected [NRi]. Fixed transparent backgrounds rendering opaque in bitmap output. Fixed width or height > 32767 pixels unexpectedly cropping bitmap output [AM]. Improved toolbar interaction. Improved settings descriptions and tooltips.

54g Wireless
Hi there, I have two apple laptops coming into our work network - one is an oldish IBook with an original Airport card which supports 64bit WEP and the other is a brand new IBook with 128bit WEP security. Our wireless network router is a belkin but only allows us to set 64 bit OR 128 bit - is there anyway of allowing either of these computers onto the network whilst securing it?

PDF to EPS workarounds for Mac OS X Attention TeXy, TeXy peoples: PDF to EPS workarounds for Mac OS X Attention TeXy, TeXy peoples: PDF to EPS workarounds for Mac OS X Attention TeXy, TeXy
Attention TeXy, TeXy peoples: (excuse the mispronunciation; punny licence) It seems that Mac OS X has partially documented issues (http://altair.ific.uv.es/~JaxoDraw/Bugparade/bugparade.htm, http://developer.apple.com/java/faq/issues.html#anchor6) with the generation of EPS, and I'm trying to find a workaround. The Preview application cannot export to eps, but it can read it (converting it to PDF). If I use Adobe Acrobat to read the PDF generated by Preview, the EPS it generates sometimes (inconsistently) causes dvips to make an unreadable file. What I'm trying to do is the followi...

Mac OS X 10.4.10 update and 64 bit
I notice in the release notes for Mac X 10.4.10 one of the points in Third-party improvements is: "Improves compatibility of Mathematica 6 with 64-bit Macs." Does anyone know how to update or enable Mathematica 6 to take advantage of this system change ? I will answer my own question: http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/macintosh/osx/32bitratherthan64bit.html Seems to work fine. ...
