Started programming Macs back when you needed a Lisa to do it. Switched to Unix about 10 years before Apple did. Now just a fanboy.

comment How do I recompile Bash to avoid Shellshock (the remote exploit CVE-2014-6271 and CVE-2014-7169)?
This bug is exploitable by a malicious DHCP server (e.g. WiFi hotspot) and can completely pwn your computer, so it's worth fixing ASAP. Other answers have better instruction for replacing /bin/bash and /bin/sh that will likely cause fewer problems than upgrading to Brew's latest bash.

comment Macbook Pro crashes when I remove power while hibernated
@bmike Filing bug reports with Apple when you're not a developer seems like a waste of time in general, and especially when you are using a feature like hibernate 25 that is explicitly "not supported".

Right, but you set standby 0 thus setting STANDBY to OFF, so standby will not hibernate the machine regardless of the hibernate mode.

Setting hibernate mode 25 does not set the laptop to hibernate automatically, it just sets the behavior when SafeSleep is called for, which is normally triggered by going into standby. I can't shake the feeling that you solved the problem by turning off standby and preventing your laptop from ever hibernating as well as preventing it from ever waking automatically.

My understanding of standby 0 is that it would prevent the laptop from hibernating, but I want the laptop to hibernate. Reading your post I see you solved this by leaving autopoweroff set to 1, but then I'm thinking that (a) that will suck too much battery before kicking in and (b) my computer will be vulnerable longer. With your configuration do you still get the grey screen password prompt every time you wake?

@Buscar웃 If the laptop never gets as far as mounting the disk, what makes you think it will be able to write anything to the Console log?
