The reason: After installing Security Update 2015-004, multiple users found that they couldn't browse to any website using the root certificate "VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority - G5" without a security warning ("invalid certificate"). 2015-004 updated the list of trusted root CAs, and for a reason I'm still unclear about, many of us ...

Very simply… Right click it & select Open. That will bypass Gatekeeper for that one app See: OS X: About Gatekeeper

This question was asked a while ago, I'm not sure if you've solved the problem. If you have, please enlighten me! I've been having the same issue (not quite every time, but almost every time I turn my Mac on). As with you, the location is my hometown. I've done some Googling, somewhat ironically, and it seems to be a security issue with OSX Yosemite causing ...

Yup, that's a Kensington slot and the product you linked will work and is on the high end in price and fit/finish. Anything compatible will work - you can open http://amazon.com and then search for "kensington type laptop lock" for dozens of vendors at various price points and key/cable configurations.

The slot is a standard Kensington compatible lock style slot, or t-bar lock. All Kensington Locks will work with this slot, including the Microsaver line. Kensington offers a smaller lock as well, reserved for tablets and ultrabooks, whose slot is less than 12mm. This uses a different attachment mechanism, but whose mechanism (Cleat) is backwardly ...

I would say it's simply not possible. It apparently took Apple months of effort to close this door. They specifically asked the reporter to hold long past the accepted announcement embargo period, in order to give them sufficient time to fix it before it went public. They say the reason for not back-porting it to earlier OSes is the sheer amount of effort ...

I have two guesses: It is an application masked as an mp3 file. Yes, you should not open it. Mac OS X gives warnings "blabla downloaded from internet" for anything, not just apps downoaded from Internet. If you are sure the file is fine, play it back. By the way, mp3 files must be able to play back by just quick previewing them (Space bar).

I would assume not cumulative, based on 15 years on Mac, and continue with -002. Absolutely there's a point, one never knows what little fixes are included in each Security Update, nor what might be dependent on previous updates. Bite the bullet and play by the Apple book.

Were able to solve the issue myself. For some reason, there were a few root certificates in my login Keychain, which have been revoked and replaced with newer certs in the System Roots keychain. Deleted those certs from my login keychain and everything works fine again.

I am having the exact same problem, it started when I installed the 10.10.3 update, since then Apple released 10.10.3 Supplemental update that has helped the issue but has not solved it. Before the supplemental update it would happen every time the machine went to sleep. Now it seems to only happen after I type my password wrong. This is a late 2013 ...

Theoreticly there's always a certain risk since no system is 100% secure. But given the measures Apple took/takes to make iOS as secure as possible that risk is kept rather low. Currently there is no known security hole regarding what you describe.

Safari on OS X uses Secure Transport for SSL/TLS, the same implementation which is linked in cURL, App Store, etc. Secure Transport does not have any user configurations available. Therefore, it is not possible to modify Safari cipher suites. Anyway, Apple recently released Security Update 2015-002 which fixes this issue. Impact: An attacker with a ...

You will have a very hard time getting the app approved is my guess, but you can always try. It's not clear why you aren't using the newsstand functionality - and that will certainly be on the reviewer's mind when they are deciding if the app store needs another app added to the pile. Technically, you can offer apps that require payment - see HBO Go, ...
