It depends on your OS. Yosemite Use Disk Utility to reset System permissions. Reset Home folder permissions & ACLs using OnyX - Maintenance tab/permissions, tick the box at the top then Execute.

It is most certainly a bug that needs to be addressed in future versions of OS X. I have the same problem and have found out the following curiosities: When I added a rule to change the color of encrypted emails to give at least a visual indication in the list view, it worked fine, so there's really no reason not to show the lock icon. The moment I added ...

Q1: Yes, it looks like someone entered your Apple ID and password. I don't think there's any other situation where this type of dialog would be triggered. Q2: You did the right thing in immediately changing your password. There's nothing you can do to get more info on who is using your ID, you did everything I would've suggested. My only remaining advice ...

Use Little Snitch 3 for that. You can use Automatic Profile Switching for your filter rules depending on the network you are in. For your specific WiFi just block everything except your browser for that. https://www.obdev.at/products/littlesnitch/index.html

Rzdoom answered your question quite well; more often than not, you're not using antivirus software for viruses on the Mac insomuch as for viruses for Windows (as Macs can sometimes carry them and spread them to Windows workstations, although this is more common in office environments than home use). You're more likely to encounter trojans and adware/malware ...

There are a few ways to keep your mac secured. Use a firewall like Little Snitch. It monitors all incoming and outgoing traffic. You'll get asked if you approve or deny a connection. Don't download stuff like warez, torrents or any other form of illegal downloads. I know this sounds to obvious but always double check where your file is coming from. When ...

I don't use a virus scanner on my Macs and never have, but then I have been supporting Macs since 1990 and have a real good idea what to do and what not to do to avoid malware. That said I have still had a couple of close shaves in the past few years. Close shaves that anyone without intimate knowledge of the platform (EG someone who works on Macs for a ...

Twitter (and by association, Vine) has a native iOS login in Settings, separate from the app itself. Deleting the app doesn't remove your accounts, or log you out.

The iOS Keychain is not deleted, when the app is deleted. So if the keychain still contains the necessary credentials the app can just log in.

This answer is based on the comments as the user perhapsmaybeharry covered how Bonjour works and how to disable it. Edit: New info - Most of the time this computer is not showing up. But it has a few times the last month. So it really feel like someone has gotten into my network. PLEASE HELP!] This could be anything from a shared computer that has ...

sshd logging is determined in /etc/asl/com.openssh.sshd. In short, you need to touch a file and then send syslogd a HUP signal: touch /var/run/com.openssh.sshd-asl-enabled kill -HUP $(ps -ef | grep [s]yslogd | awk '{print $2}') After that, you will find the logs in /var/log/sshd.log

The answer depend on how you use your iPhone. In this case, you said "reset it via the utility so it would reset itself once it went online. I did that" do you mention about erase data option on iCloud webpage? If yes then the answer is YES, the phone do require your password to pass Activation Lock.

It is a feature called activation lock Click for more info I would suggest changing your Apple ID password to something simple then after about 5 minutes change it back

Basically, if you can execute arbitrary code or write to arbitrary disk locations, you're jailbroken. iOS security researcher Stefan Esser (also knows as i0n1c) has developed an application called System and Security Info to determine if an iOS device is currently jailbroken by testing for the abilities that you gain from jailbreaking. Update: Apple has ...

This option is valid for vCenter, not sure about Workstation. You might have a machine that boots very fast and are unable to hit keys in time. Click on VM and select tab Summary and then under VM Hardware -> Edit Settings: VM Options: Boot Options: Boot Delay Enter 5000 as milliseconds ( 5 seconds ). Restore settings when done to avoid unnecessary boot ...

Yes, FileVault 2 encrypts the entire drive, including free space and trash. To securely delete the entire drive, I find this info here: While Apple removed secure-erase options from the Finder, Terminal commands still exist that can be used. The first is the classic “rm” file removal command, augmented with the “r” flags for recursive deletion of folders, ...

This is not a security breach (if you're on a public network). The "shared" section under the sidebar is Apple's Bonjour protocol that allows for detection of other computers that support Bonjour. In the case of a computer being shown in the sidebar, the computer is not connected until you click it and authenticate. I would assume you would be on a public ...

When a wipe occurs, the file system key is deleted. It's as simple as that. Page 11 of the September 2015 iOS Security White Paper states that the file system key is stored in NAND. The metadata of all files in the file system is encrypted with a random key, which is created when iOS is first installed or when the device is wiped by a user. The file ...

The security command is working as expected, and is following the same keychain access policies that any other program would follow. Accessing a user's keychain is not an admin function -- the user's keychain belongs to them, so admin access is irrelevant. On the other hand, the System keychain (/Library/Keychains//System.keychain) is "owned by" the ...
