The issue isn't with Firefox or Apple. It is Java itself that is blocking the application. The way to fix this is to add the website to the Exception Site List within Java Control Panel. Open System Preferences and click on Java, which should launch Java Control Panel. Select the Security tab and click the "Edit Site List..." button near the bottom. Then ...

I use many of their tools and this is probably not a false-positive. The only currently known false positives stated on their Dynamic Hijack Scanner webpage (at the bottom) ia Microsoft Messenger (mbukernel) and Microsoft Messenger Daemon (mbuinstrument). About your scan results, I also have BitTorrent Sync installed on my Mac and I get the same message ...

Have a look at this method I used for many years on Lion and Mountain Lion: How to stop InternetSharing overwriting /etc/bootpd.plist Since the culprit is still InternetSharing overwriting a standard configuration file, the method should work.

As it turned out, the problem here was that the network domain it had been registered had fallen out of sync. The time delay was a network timeout from believing it had access to the Domain controller and the time it didn't receive a response. Re-enrolling the device in the domain remedied this issue.

You can create a password-protected ad-hoc network by sharing your internet connection. To do so: Go to Apple Menu -> System Preferences Go to Sharing preference pane Select "Internet Sharing" Choose the source port Set your connection to be broadcast over WiFi Click on WiFi options and set a network name and security While this is a little more involved ...

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.

I second recommendation for "Little Snitch". It's always running on my Mac. At first, shocking to see much traffic from the OS itself. To hide what you don't want revealed, you can set up rules in "Little Snitch". I also use "Avast" to control connections.

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 ...

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 ...

To change the preferences; click the apple at top left of screen. Click system preferences. Click security and privacy. Press the lock at the bottom left of the window to unlock changes. Select "Anywhere" under "Allow apps downloaded from". After you have opened the app for the first time you can change these preferences back and will still be able to use ...

I always do it like this: right click, then keep pressed Alt down, an click open.

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

Thanks, this seemed the most promising for me.. (Edit: sadly it didn't work for me, but it got me on the right path, so read on... thanks!) I searched the keychain and did indeed find those verisign G5s .... i deleted them but i still had the same problem with the same/similar error messages you mentioned above, even after a browser and entire mac restart ...

I suggest using Teamviewer software (https://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx) and install on all computers wishing to access the Mac as well as the Mac itself - this has worked very well for me in the past, and as a bonus they will be able to access the Mac from mobile devices etc. if the need arises.

I understand that you're running into issues, so this is going to be more for others looking for info on this topic. Encrypting non-boot volumes should be a relatively easy process in OS X 10.8.x and later. To encrypt a non-boot volume: Right-click on the volume you want to encrypt Select the Encrypt… command When prompted, enter a password and ...

This is not a mitigation, but it may help in getting the issue fixed. Below is the complaint filed with the FTC. Others should consider filing a complaint too, in an effort to get this fixed. Apple can shun users like you and I, but they are going to have a tougher time with agencies like the FTC. Complaints can be filed with the FTC using the Complaint ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 agree with Zo219 and wanted to add some other thoughts. Reading the article - the security fixes are present in both 10.10.3 and update 2005-004. Those fixes are clearly not in 2015-002 so you'll want to finish 002 and then evaluate if you're jumping to 10.10.3 or will need to apply 2015-004 as a stopgap before .3 can be rolled out. Based on how fast you ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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, ...

What is "Apple Persistent State Encryption" Used by the persistent state feature to encrypt window snapshots to ensure privacy. It is changed frequently. So that one is normal. As for your password, no one can change it without knowing the old password. If you have set up your log in with Apple ID assistance you can use it to recover your ...
