Yes, it is possible to re-enable secure erase. All you need to do is to format the partition once again. Just make sure you select "Mac OS Extended (Journaled, Encrypted)", with any password that you will remember (just in case). Once formatted, the "Security Options" button will be available again, and you can securely wipe out the partition!

There is no evidence of any malware from the output of your discoveryd normally running daemon. Your pkill -f 6115 command failed because luckilly you don't have a process which full command name would be 6115. This is the sign of too fast reading the pkill documentation and not at all of an attack. If you really want to kill discoveryd here is the correct ...

I don't think that's possible, at least not through the official App Store software update. If you don't have a password, and you have an install disk, CD or flash drive, you should be able to reformat the disk and reinstall a fresh copy, in which you would lose all your data. You can back up any files you need to another disk, and then manually copy the ...

You should install unbound and have that be your dns resolver on Mac OS X. Unbound supports DNSSEC. Next, you need whatever apps you want to use, to be aware of and respect the results of the DNSSEC validation that unbound does.

https://github.com/Temptin/Documents/blob/master/Yosemite_Patchless_TRIM.md Brings forward the method of enabling TRIM using 'trimforce' in the command line. It does EXACTLY what Apple's official TRIM enabler will do with 10.0.4, without disabling Kext. Does Trim enabler give anything more for $10? I might be missing something.

The only way to know this is to watch the release notes for every subsequent version of iTunes and see if the release has any security content. This will change over time, but the present version of iTunes for Windows is 12.1.2, for which the release notes can be found here: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1614. You will note that security is not mentioned ...

Using multiple Apple IDs might be confusing and might cause issues with accessing purchased content or using some services.

Change the keychain password, and then lock the keychain when not using the Mac. Unless you want everyone to be able to login to your accounts. Then it's just that you need a change in policy, not in keychains.

They may not be able to log onto AT&T or unlock your phone to read your texts. However, if they have access to your iPhone, they can listen to your texts! Even under Settings → Notifications with the Show on Lock Screen option off, all someone has to do is ask Siri to read messages and she will! So turn off Siri to keep those text private!

If you don't want to risk running unstable beta software, you can try transplanting a 10.9 version of mDNSresponder to 10.10 replacing discoveryd. Nothing failed to work after this patch.
