ΕΙΝΑΙ ΤΟ macOS CATALINA ΑΡΚΕΤΑ ΣΤΑΘΕΡΟ ΓΙΑ ΕΠΙΧΕΙΡΗΜΑΤΙΚΗ ΧΡΗΣΗ;



Η Apple κυκλοφόρησε το macOS Catalina τον Οκτώβριο του 2019, αλλά με αρκετά προβλήματα.

Ακολουθούν ορισμένοι παράγοντες που πρέπει να εξετάσετε πριν αποφασίσετε να αναβαθμίσετε τα Macs της Εταιρείας σας σε Catalina.

ΕΙΝΑΙ ΣΤΑΘΕΡΟ ΤΟ macOS Catalina;

Μία από τις πιο σημαντικές αλλαγές στην Catalina είναι η έλλειψη υποστήριξης για εφαρμογές 32 bit. Αυτό δεν επηρεάζει μόνο τα εμπορικά προϊόντα, όπως παλαιότερες εκδόσεις του 1Password, VMware Fusion, Microsoft Office, Parallels και QuickBooks, αλλά και εφαρμογές 32 bit business-to-business που μπορεί να χρησιμοποιούνται στην εταιρεία σας.

Εάν ο τεχνικός IT σας εγκαταστήσει το Catalina σε ένα σύστημα που περιλαμβάνει εφαρμογές 32 bit, αυτές οι εφαρμογές δεν θα λειτουργούν πλέον. Οι χρήστες θα πρέπει να κάνουν χωρίς αυτές ή η εταιρεία θα πρέπει να τις αντικαταστήσει με νεότερες. Ωστόσο, για κάποιες εφαρμογές παλαιές εμπορικές εφαρμογές, η αντικατάστασή τους δεν αποτελεί επιλογή επειδή δεν υπάρχουν διαθέσιμες ενημερώσεις.

Οποιοδήποτε από αυτά τα ζητήματα μπορεί να επηρεάσει αρκετά την παραγωγικότητα. Εάν η μόνη βιώσιμη επιλογή της εταιρείας είναι να συνεχίσει να χρησιμοποιεί τις εφαρμογές 32 bit, δεν πρέπει να αναβαθμίσετε στο Catalina μέχρι να είστε έτοιμοι να τις αντικαταστήσετε.

Τα προϊόντα της Adobe ήταν ένα από τα διασημότερα θύματα του Catalina. Ορισμένες παλαιότερες εκδόσεις του Photoshop, για παράδειγμα, εξακολουθούν να χρησιμοποιούν 32 bit τεχνολογία. Ακόμη και οι εφαρμογές του Creative Cloud 2018 περιέχουν ορισμένα από αυτά τα στοιχεία. Η Adobe συνιστά στους οργανισμούς να δοκιμάσουν πλήρως αυτά τα προϊόντα στο Catalina, για να διασφαλίσουν ότι όλα θα λειτουργούν όπως αναμενόταν.

Το Catalina μπορεί επίσης να επηρεάσει τα λογισμικά ασφαλείας. Για παράδειγμα, για να εκτελέσετε σωστά το Symantec Endpoint Protection, μπορείτε να χρησιμοποιήσετε μόνο την έκδοση 14.2 RU2 και για να εκτελέσετε το Sophos Endpoint, πρέπει να χρησιμοποιήσετε την έκδοση 9.9.4 ή νεότερη έκδοση. Λόγω της νέας δομής δικαιωμάτων, το λειτουργικό σύστημα δεν θα ειδοποιεί τους χρήστες σχετικά με θέματα που σχετίζονται απειλές σε επίπεδο συστήματος. Οι εταιρείες που επιθυμούν να αναβαθμίσουν σε Catalina θα πρέπει πρώτα να διασφαλίσουν ότι τα λογισμικά ασφαλείας τους είναι πλήρως συμβατά με το λειτουργικό σύστημα.

Μια ακόμη ανησυχία είναι πως το Catalina κατακλύζει τους χρήστες με προτροπές που σχετίζονται με δικαιώματα, απαιτώντας τους να αποδεχθούν ή να αρνηθούν δικαιώματα σε πολλές εφαρμογές. Αυτό μπορεί εύκολα να οδηγήσει σε κόπωση, όπου οι χρήστες απλώς αποδέχονται τα πάντα εξ αιτίας του μεγάλου αριθμού προτροπών. Αυτό το ζήτημα μπορεί επίσης να οδηγήσει τους χρήστες να ακυρώσουν κατά λάθος τα δικαιώματα σε ορισμένες εφαρμογές, εμποδίζοντας τις εφαρμογές αυτές να λειτουργούν σωστά.

Επιπλέον, η νέα δομή δικαιωμάτων μπορεί να δημιουργήσει πρόβλημα σε αυτοματοποιημένα scripts ή άλλα υπάρχοντα scripts, όπως Python ή AppleScript, που επηρεάζουν την παραγωγικότητα των χρηστών και των διαχειριστών. Ακόμη και οι πιο έμπειροι χρήστες θα μπορούσαν να πέσουν σε φαύλο κύκλου προσπαθώντας να αντιμετωπίσουν θέματα που σχετίζονται με δικαιώματα.

Πολλές άλλες ανησυχίες έχουν εγερθεί με το Catalina, όπως προβλήματα κατά την εγκατάσταση, λάθη σύνδεσης, κακή απόδοση και μικρότερη διάρκεια ζωής της μπαταρίας. Οι επαγγελματίες τεχνικοί πληροφορικής πρέπει να περιμένουν μέχρι το macOS Catalina να είναι πιο σταθερό πριν αναβαθμίσουν. Ακόμα και τότε, θα πρέπει να δοκιμάσουν πλήρως το λειτουργικό σύστημα για να βεβαιωθούν ότι θα υποστηρίξουν όλες τις εφαρμογές που χρησιμοποιούν για την άσκηση των δραστηριοτήτων της εκάστοτε επιχείρησης.

Η Apple ανακοίνωσε νέο MacBook Pro με 8πύρηνο επεξεργαστή, αλλά και πρόγραμμα δωρεάν επισκευής γιά τα MacBook, MacBook Pro και MacBook Air με πληκτρολόγιο τύπου "Πεταλούδας" (Butterfly)!



Η Apple προχώρησε στην αναβάθμιση των MacBook Pro 13 και 15 ιντσών, η οποία κρύβει μερικές εκπλήξεις.

Στο επίκεντρο των νέων μοντέλων βρίσκεται η 8η γενιά των τετραπύρηνων επεξεργαστών της Intel σε ότι αφορά το MacBook Pro 13 ιντσών με ενσωματωμένη Λωρίδα Αφής (Touch Bar).

Στο μοντέλο των 15 ιντσών υπάρχουν πολύ πιο σημαντικές διαφορές στις ταχύτητες, αφού η Apple παρουσιάζει για πρώτη φορά και MacBook με 8πύρηνο επεξεργαστή.

Στο συγκεκριμένο μοντέλο οι χρήστες θα πρέπει να περιμένουν διπλάσια ταχύτητα σε σχέση με το τετραπύρηνο μοντέλο, ενώ στο μοντέλο με εξαπύρηνο επεξεργαστή, η αύξηση στην ταχύτητα υπολογίζεται στο 40%.

Σε ότι αφορά το MacBook Pro 13 ιντσών με Λωρίδα Αφής (Touch Bar), υπάρχει αύξηση στο χρονισμό του τετραπύρηνου επεξεργαστή στα 2.4 GHz, με το Turbo Boost να φτάνει τα 4.7 GHz.

Με τα καινούρια MacBook Pro, η Apple προχωρά και σε μια νέα κίνηση που αφορά το πληκτρολόγιο και το μηχανισμό "πεταλούδας" που παρουσίασε πριν μερικά χρόνια, και αποτελεί κατά γενική ομολογία ένα από τα μειονεκτήματα των φορητών της εταιρείας, πηγή παράλληλα πολλών τεχνικών προβλημάτων.

Έτσι μετά την αθόρυβη προσθήκη μιας μεμβράνης στα πλήκτρα που θεωρητικά θα εξαφάνιζε το διπλό πάτημα πλήκτρων και θα τα προστάτευε από τη σκόνη -δύο από τα σημαντικότερα προβλήματα-, η Apple προχωρά στα νέα MacBook σε τρεις σημαντικές αλλαγές:


1. Η πρώτη αφορά το μηχανισμό του πληκτρολογίου και τη χρήση των υλικών που έχουν χρησιμοποιηθεί για την κατασκευή του, με τις αλλαγές στο συγκεκριμένο κομμάτι να προορίζονται στο να εξαφανίσουν το λανθασμένο διπλό πάτημα των πλήκτρων.


2. Αν και η παραπάνω αλλαγή αναμένεται να λύσει οριστικά το πρόβλημα, η Apple περιλαμβάνει όλα τα MacBook που διαθέτουν πληκτρολόγιο με μηχανισμό "πεταλούδας" σε πρόγραμμα επισκευής, με την εταιρεία να προχωρά σε δωρεάν αντικατάστασή του, είτε ο υπολογιστής βρίσκεται σε εγγύηση είτε όχι.

Τα μοντέλα MacBook, MacBook Air και MacBook Pro που περιλαμβάνονται στο πρόγραμμα αντικατάστασης πληκτρολογίου είναι τα εξής:

MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2015)

MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, Early 2016)

MacBook (Retina, 12-inch, 2017)

MacBook Air (Retina, 13-inch, 2018)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2018)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2019, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2019)

Εντυπωσιακό είναι το γεγονός ότι στη λίστα περιλαμβάνονται και τα νέα MacBook που μόλις ανακοινώθηκαν, κάτι που σίγουρα προκαλεί απορίες... Σύμφωνα με την ιστοσελίδα της Apple, οι ενδιαφερόμενοι θα πρέπει να επισκεφθούν είτε ένα Apple Store αν υπάρχει στη χώρα τους είτε ένα επίσημο εξουσιοδοτημένο κέντρο service.


3. Οι χρόνοι επισκευής και αντικατάστασης ενός τέτοιου πληκτρολογίου δεν ήταν οι καλύτεροι, με την εταιρεία να προχωρά σε σημαντικές αλλαγές προκειμένου να επιταχύνει την όλη διαδικασία.

Αποκαλύφθηκαν εφαρμογές για Mac οι οποίες υποκλέπτουν τα δεδομένα του Web Browser και προσωπικά δεδομένα του Χρήστη!



Ένα πολύ σημαντικό κενό ασφαλείας αποκαλύφθηκε πριν λίγες ημέρες.

Μερικές από τις εφαρμογές στο App Store για Mac, συλλέγουν κρυφά τα δεδομένα των χρηστών και τα ανεβάζουν σε Analytics Servers χωρίς την άδεια των ανυποψίαστων χρηστών.

Δημοφιλείς εφαρμογές όπως οι Dr. Unarchiver και Dr. Cleanerand, καθώς και άλλες εφαρμογές της εταιρείας ανάπτυξης "Trend Micro Inc.", συλλέγουν και ανεβάζουν πληροφορίες των χρηστών στους servers τους, από το ιστορικό των Safari, Google Chrome και Firefox.

Όλα αυτά μέσω πρόσβασης στον Φάκελλο του Χρήστη (macOS Home Directory).

Οι "πονηρές" αυτές εφαρμογές συλλέγουν δεδομένα κι από άλλα εγκατεστημένα apps εντός του συστήματος, στα οποία ξεκινάει η περισυλλογή μόλις τα εκκινήσετε, σύμφωνα με το 9to5Mac. Το πρόβλημα εντοπίστηκε αρχικά από χρήστη του Malwarebytes forum.

Οι αναφορές επιβεβαιώθηκαν από το 9to5Mac, όταν μετά από εγκατάσταση της εφαρμογής Dr. Unarchiver και σκαναρίσματος του home directory μέσω του "Quick Clean Junk Files", η εφαρμογή ξεκίνησε να συλλέγει σωρεία από περιττές πληροφορίες.

Αυτές περιείχαν δεδομένα από διάφορους browsers, αποκλειστικά αρχεία από πρόσφατα Google searches και έναν πλήρη κατάλογο από όλες τις εγκατεστημένες εφαρμογές που υπάρχουν στο σύστημα (συμπεριλαμβανομένων Code Signatures, εάν είναι ή όχι συμβατές με 64-bit και πληροφορίες σχετικά με το από που έγινε το download).

Κατά την διάρκεια της έρευνας, το Dr. Unarchiver ήταν η 12η δημοφιλέστερη εφαρμογή στο Αμερικάνικο Mac App Store, αλλά πλέον το έχουν αποσύρει από την αρχική σελίδα.

Ενώ το macOS Mojave έρχεται για να βελτιώσει την ασφάλεια σχετικά με τις εφαρμογές που έχουν πρόσβαση στο Home Directory, η διαδικασία ελέγχου του Store θα έπρεπε να είχε αντιληφθεί την συγκεκριμένη παραβίαση περί ασφάλειας του χρήστη και να μην είχε επιτρέψει την κυκλοφορία των εφαρμογών στο Mac App Store.

Επιπλέον τα νέα αυτά αμαυρώνουν την φήμη του Αμερικανικού κολοσσού, καθώς η Apple θα έπρεπε να παρέχει μεγαλύτερη ασφάλεια από την στιγμή που έχει πιο αυστηρή προσέγγιση σε ότι αφορά τις εφαρμογές, τουλάχιστον σε σύγκριση με την προσέγγιση της Google.

Τα νέα αυτά έρχονται μετά την αποκάλυψη πως μια άλλη διάσημη εφαρμογή του Apple Mac App Store, το Adware Doctor, ήταν τελικά ένα μυστικό spyware το οποίο έστελνε το ιστορικό του browser στην Κίνα.

Προτού αφαιρεθεί, το Adware Doctor (αξίας 4,99$) ήταν 5ο στην λίστα με τις επί πληρωμή εφαρμογές του App Store.

Η εφαρμογή είχε λάβει πάνω από 6000 βαθμολογήσεις 5 Αστέρων, αλλά είναι αμφίβολο κατά πόσο οι θετικές βαθμολογήσεις ήταν πραγματικές.

Τα τελευταία προβλήματα με τα πληκτρολόγια των νέων MacBook και MacBook Pro, φέρνουν ξανά στην επικαιρότητα ένα καυστικό άρθρο για τον έλεγχο ποιότητος των προϊόντων τεχνολογίας: "BAD TECHNOLOGY - BETA CULTURE: A Call for Revolution Against Beta Culture"

BAD TECHNOLOGY - BETA CULTURE: A Call for Revolution Against Beta Culture



I'm tired of this. This sense of permanent discomfort with the technology around me. The bugs. The compromises. The firmware upgrades. The "This will work in the next version." The "It's in our roadmap." The "Buy now and upgrade later." The patches. The new low development standards that make technology fail because it wasn't tested enough before reaching our hands. The feeling now extends to hardware: Everything is built to end up in the trash a year later, still half-baked, to make room for the next hardware revision. I'm tired of this beta culture that has spread like metastatic cancer in the last few years, starting with software from Google and others and ending up in almost every gadget and computer system around. We need a change.

Take the iPhone, for example, one of the most successful products in the history of consumer electronics. We like it, I love mine, but the fact is that the first generation was rushed out, lacking basic features that were added in later releases or are not here yet. Worse: The iPhone 3G was really broken. For real. Bad signal, dropped calls, frozen apps. This would have been unthinkable in cellphones just five years ago. They were simpler, for sure, but they were failure proof. Today's engineering and testing is a lot more sophisticated. In theory, products can't go out into distribution with such glaring problems undetected.

Another recent example is my iMac 24, which had the infamous video card problem out of the box. How can a machine with such an obvious problem—instantly detected by the user base—be sold like that? The same happened recently with Nvidia video boards. In fact, graphic cards—being always in the cutting edge of technology—are perfect examples of beta hardware being sold as final hardware, with many released with beta-quality drivers and requiring firmware patches.

From that to the now-universally-accepted Blue Screen of Death, from buggy Blu-ray players to the Xbox 360's red ring of death and PS3's bugs, even from kitchen ovens to faulty DSLR cameras, the list of troubled products is endless. Just this week, the eagerly anticipated BlackBerry Storm launched to mixed reviews, in part because of its crashy, apparently unfinished software.

On the other side, my parents have a Telefunken CRT TV and a Braun radio from the '70s which are still in working condition. They were first generation. They never failed. Compare that to my first plasma TV from Philips, which broke after less than a year of use. Mine wasn't the only one. The technology was too young to be released; it was still in beta state. Philips wanted to be the first in the world with a flat TV and beat the competition, so they released it. This probably wasn't a good move: Today, Philips' TV business is struggling, and is nonexistent in the US. Meanwhile, my Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Apple IIe from the 1980s still work like they did from day one, perfectly.

For sure, today's products are far more complex than those of 20 or 30 years ago. But back then, the manufacturing was also a lot worse. It was less automated, often purely manual, and imperfect. Today, in a world where automated factories run 24/7, there's less chance of error. Yet still, there are countless problems in the final products, and those problems affect every unit in an entire model line. In the age of manufacturing perfection, there are still major recalls concerning products that burn or break.

Clearly, the problem is the development process and the time to market, with product cycles shortened and corners cut to keep a continuous stream of cash flowing in. The rush to feed these cycles with increasingly more complex engineering seems to be at odds with shortened development and quality assurance processes, resulting in beta-state first-generation products. This beta culture, the same one that already plagues the web, breeds people who are willing to accept bugs in the name of cutting-edge gear.

Who's to blame? Google and their web apps? Apple and their iPhone 3G problems? Microsoft and their countless buggy versions of operating systems and the Xbox 360's RROD? Philips? Sony? Samsung? LG? We all are. The manufacturers, who are driven by a thirst to expand and satisfy their shareholders at all costs. The consumers, who are so thirsty to drink in the shiniest, newest technology that they are willing to sacrifice stability. And the press too, who pours more gasoline onto the consumerism bonfire by writing glowing reviews and often minimizing things that are simply not acceptable.

Personally, I'm tired of all this. But I'm mostly tired about the fact that it seems that we all have given up. Tired because now we see "upgrades" as an opportunity to protect our investment, but in reality, it's laziness and a poor job on the manufacturer part that we have accepted without questioning. Instead of calling foul play and refusing to participate, we keep buying.

That's the key: We have surrendered in the name of progress and marketing and product cycles and consumerism. Maybe those are good reasons, I don't know, but looking at the past, it feels like we are being conned. Deceived because the manufacturers of electronic products have taken our desire to progress faster and even embrace the web beta culture as an excuse to rush things to market, to blatantly admit bugs and the rushed features sets and sell the patches as upgrades.

Maybe the recession will put some order in this thirst of new stuff and change the product cycles. As the economy slows down, people will think twice before buying the latest and greatest; they'll keep older hardware for longer. Then, manufacturers will have to rethink their product lines, and lift their feet from the accelerator, which will result on slower cycles and better products. Maybe that's our ticket for better electronics that actually make sense.

Or maybe... maybe that will be another excuse for the manufacturer to cut even more corners and keep lowering prices so that consumers keep spending and ending up with worse products than we have now.

Δοκιμές που πραγματοποιήθηκαν δείχνουν ότι οι σύγχρονοι SSD δίσκοι μπορούν να αντέξουν χιλιάδες έτη χρήσης!




Οι περισσότεροι χρήστες περιμένουν την εποχή που θα "παροπλίσουν" τους σκληρούς δίσκους και θα τους αντικαταστήσουν με "μεγάλους" σε χωρητικότητα και ταχύτατους solid state drives. Πόσο όμως καλύτεροι είναι οι SSD από τους απλούς;

Σύμφωνα με δοκιμές της ιστοσελίδας The Tech Report είναι αρκετά καλύτερη. Η δοκιμή που πραγματοποίησε ο ιστότοπος αφορούσε έξι μοντέλα SSD μεταξύ των οποίων ήταν οι Kingston HyperX 3K, Samsung 840 Pro και η σειρά 335 της Intel.

Στην δοκιμή, τα προϊόντα εξαναγκάστηκαν να εγγράφουν και να επανεγγράφουν 10GB μικρών και μεγάλων αρχείων.

Τέσσερα από τα μοντέλα που έλαβαν μέρος στην δοκιμή αστόχησαν πριν το όριο του petabyte (αν και ξεπέρασαν αρκετά τις προδιαγραφές τους) και συχνά αφότου τα συστήματα SMART που διέθεταν είχαν μεταφέρει χιλιάδες bytes από κατεστραμμένους "sectors" της μνήμης flash.

Οι solid state drives ωστόσο των Samsung και Kingston κατάφεραν να εγγράψουν 2 petabytes δεδομένων χωρίς να παρουσιάσουν κάποιο πρόβλημα.

Λαμβάνοντας υπόψη ότι ένας απλός χρήστης πραγματοποιεί εγγραφές μερικών terabytes κάθε χρόνο σε ένα SSD, κάποιος θα μπορούσε να ισχυριστεί ότι οι συγκεκριμένοι δε θα εμφανίσουν πρόβλημα για πολλά... ίσως χιλιάδες χρόνια.

Η δοκιμή που πραγματοποιήθηκε ήταν μικρή και ανεπίσημη ωστόσο ενισχύει την άποψη ότι ένας SSD είναι πιο αξιόπιστος και αντέχει περισσότερο από έναν απλό σκληρό δίσκο.

Γρηγορότερο και ασφαλές θα είναι το Bluetooth 4.2, με έμφαση στο "Internet of Things"!




Ο μη κερδοσκοπικός οργανισμός Bluetooth Special Interest Group (BSIG), υπεύθυνος για την ανάπτυξη νέων προτύπων όσον αφορά την ασύρματη σύνδεση, ανακοίνωσε επίσημα την έκδοση 4.2 του προτύπου Bluetooth.

Το ενδιαφέρον στη νέα έκδοση είναι η δυνατότητα των συσκευών που το υποστηρίζουν να λαμβάνουν διεύθυνση IP.

Μακροπρόθεσμα αυτό σημαίνει πως οι λειτουργίες ενός σπιτιού θα είναι αυτοματοποιημένες και θα μπορεί να δοθεί πρόσβαση μέσω Διαδικτύου χωρίς τη χρήση μιας συσκευής διαμεσολαβητή, όπως για παράδειγμα το άναμμα και σβήσιμο των φώτων, του θερμοστάτη ή ακόμα και μιας πόρτας.

Σύμφωνα με το BSIG, το Bluetooth 4.2 θα επιτρέψει την ευκολότερη επικοινωνία μεταξύ των συσκευών και θα γίνει η βάση για το Internet of Things.

Εκτός των άλλων, η έκδοση 4.2 θα χρησιμοποιεί λιγότερη ενέργεια αλλά θα είναι πιο γρήγορη, επιτρέποντας τη μεταφορά δεδομένων μεταξύ δυο συσκευών στο μισό χρόνο που απαιτείται τώρα.

Επιπλέον, η ανίχνευση συσκευών μέσω του Bluetooth 4.2 θα είναι πιο δύσκολη, έως αδύνατη για τα καταστήματα που χρησιμοποιούν το iBeacon της Apple, εκτός και αν δοθεί άδεια να επικοινωνούν οι σταθμοί (beackons) με τις συσκευές των χρηστών.

Παρ'όλα αυτά, το ArsTechnica διευκρινίζει πως μερικές και όχι όλες οι λειτουργίες θα είναι διαθέσιμες σε παλαιότερες συσκευές ενώ εκπρόσωπος τύπου του BSIG αναφέρει πως για να λειτουργήσουν παλαιότερες συσκευές με τη νέα έκδοση 4.2 θα πρέπει να αναβαθμιστούν σε πιο πρόσφατο hardware.

Planning to upgrade to OS X Yosemite? Wait!




Apple released OS X Yosemite. By now you should recognize this as a familiar refrain from yours truly, but I'm going to say it anyway: Don't upgrade. Just don't do it. At least not yet.

Yosemite's been in developers' hands since June, when it was announced at Apple's WWDC event in San Francisco, and it's also been in the public's hands — in the form of a public beta version that's been iterated several times since its release this summer.

So I, for one, am hoping for a more stable release than we saw of Mavericks, which took months to sort out after it made its debut last fall.

But I'm not counting on it.

Ever since iOS 8 dropped in September there's been incessant chatter on tech blogs armchair-quarterbacking Apple's internal development processes. I've also seen at least a few blogs suggest that Apple's quality assurance measures have gone downhill; that Apple's no longer focusing on quality. Some have even hauled out the well-worn "This never would have happened with Steve Jobs" trope that's been beaten to death since his passing in 2011.

It's all bullshit.

Apple's QA has been a lot worse. Just ask any of us old Mac vets who lived through the "Classic" Mac OS days. And there were a few stinkers on the OS X road too.

Certainly stuff like iOS 8.0.1 shouldn't have happened - killing your new flagship product with an over the air update was just baffling, and I hope some day to learn the story of just how that got out the door.

But the fact is that iOS and OS X are both complex, intricate systems. And Apple has a pretty aggressive update schedule that brings major new versions of its operating systems each year. Sometimes it takes a bit of time for Apple to shake out the problems.

The problem as I see it is that Apple has now made it trivially easy for many of us to upgrade the second we get a notification, so upgrade we do. Anyone on the bleeding edge of an upgrade who experiences problems is likely to complain about it, and social media makes it simple for us to find like-minded people and band together. Even Apple's own discussion forums sometimes give us a distorted sense of the magnitude of technical problems we have with our Apple products.

Before I wrote I had a career in IT, and it was drilled into me by my bosses that we should never be on the bleeding edge of anything because doing so carries risk, and risk costs us profitability. It was a problem, sometimes, because vendors promised the moon if we'd just agree to upgrade our software or hardware. The temptation is to increase productivity — and therefore profits.

That risk aversion is easy to lose when it's not a question of making money, but just of having the newest thing you can. It's easy when Apple releases the software updates for free, too.

It's especially compelling this year, because many Mac users have iOS devices too, and already have upgraded to iOS 8 or may have purchased a new device that already has iOS 8 installed on it. And iOS 8 and Yosemite sport benefits together — in the form of Apple's "Handoff" technology — that promise an experience greater than the sum of their parts.

But if your Mac is stable and working well enough right now with Mavericks, I'd caution you to consider waiting just a little bit of time before upgrading to Yosemite. You really ought to wait and see where the pitfalls are before you jump.

Some of you are reading this and scoffing. You've been using the public beta and you see no reason to wait. Or you really want or need those Handoff features to work right. Or you mistakenly upgraded to iCloud Drive when you switched to iOS 8 and you want to get access to your iCloud documents again.

Before you start crafting an angry retort scoffing at my suggestion, please understand that my advice is not offered as a one-size-fits-all recommendation to everyone — just to those of you reading this who may not have a compelling reason (or think you know better). For those of you, just hang on a bit and see where the problems lie. Then decide when it's time to make the jump to Yosemite.

Κακόβουλο Λογισμικό WireLurker: Σημαντική απειλή ασφαλείας για Mac και iOS συσκευές!




Η εταιρία Palo Alto Networks, αποκάλυψε ένα malware για συσκευές της Apple με λειτουργικό Mac OS X και iOS, πρακτικά όλες τις συσκευές της εταιρίας.
 
Σύμφωνα με την Palo Alto Networks, το malware με την ονομασία WireLurker έχει εξαπλωθεί από το Maiyadi App Store (κινέζικο App Store για το OS X) και έχει μολύνει περισσότερους από 350 χιλιάδες υπολογιστές, οι οποίοι με τη σειρά τους μολύνουν τις iOS φορητές συσκευές της Apple.
 
Το WireLurker "μεταδίδεται", όταν οι συσκευές με iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) συνδεθούν μέσω USB με τον μολυσμένο υπολογιστή.
 
Κατά τη σύνδεση, το WireLurker αποκτά πρόσβαση στη συσκευή, χρησιμοποιώντας πλαστό enterprise provisioning certificate (χρησιμοποιείται από εταιρίες για  εγκατάσταση software χωρίς την έγκριση του App Store), ενώ εγκαθίσταται και σε συσκευές που έχει γίνει jailbreak.
 
Στα jailbroken iPhone, το malware ξαναεγκαθιστά εφαρμογές όπως το TaoBao και το AliPay (εφαρμογές για δημοπρασίες και πληρωμές) ώστε να μαζέψει χρήσιμες πληροφορίες.
 
Οι ερευνητές αναφέρουν ότι η συγκεκριμένη εφαρμογή είναι ένας έλεγχος για να δοκιμάσουν ότι το σύστημα λειτουργεί, πριν περάσουν σε κακόβουλες δραστηριότητες.
 
Το malware είναι σε πρώιμο στάδιο και δεν γνωρίζουν οι ερευνητές πως μπορεί να εξελιχθεί, ενώ προτείνουν να αποφεύγουν οι χρήστες USB φορτιστές από άγνωστους κατασκευαστές και να μην εγκαθιστούν εφαρμογές από τρίτα App Stores.
 
Η Palo Alto Networks έχει ήδη αναπτύξει το εργαλείο WireLurker: A New Era in OS X and iOS Malware που μπορεί να ελέγξει την ύπαρξη του malware.

Έχεις ASUS modem-router; Εάν ναι, ενδέχεται τα δεδομένα σου να μην είναι ασφαλή!




Αν είστε κάτοχος router της ASUS, να ξέρετε ότι τα δεδομένα στον υπολογιστή σας ενδέχεται να μην είναι ασφαλή. Ένας χρήστης, εντόπισε πρόσφατα ένα αρχείο κειμένου στον υπολογιστή του που τον προειδοποιούσε ότι είχε πέσει θύμα hacking εξαιτίας ενός κενού ασφαλείας στο router της ASUS που χρησιμοποιούσε για να έχει πρόσβαση στο σκληρό του δίσκο από διάφορες τοποθεσίες στο τοπικό του δίκτυο.

Το μήνυμα που είχε “ανεβάσει” κάποιος στον σκληρό του δίσκο έλεγε: “Αυτό είναι ένα αυτοματοποιημένο μήνυμα που εστάλη σε όσους έχουν επηρεαστεί. Στο ASUS router (και στα έγγραφα σας) μπορεί να έχει πρόσβαση ο καθένας στον κόσμο με σύνδεση στο Internet. Είναι απαραίτητο να προστατεύσετε τον εαυτό σας και να μάθετε περισσότερα διαβάζοντας το άρθρο που ακολουθεί στην διεύθυνση: http://nullfluid.com/asusgate.txt.

Ο συγκεκριμένος χρήστης πάντως το πιθανότερο είναι να μην είναι ο μοναδικός που βρήκε το παραπάνω αρχείο κειμένου στον σκληρό του δίσκο. Δύο εβδομάδες νωρίτερα, σχεδόν 13.000 διευθύνσεις IP κατόχων ASUS routers “αναρτήθηκαν” σε κοινή θέα.

Το hacking group που ανέλαβε την ευθύνη δημοσιοποίησε και ένα αρχείο torrent που περιέχει 10.000 λίστες (ολοκληρωμένες ή τμήματα) από αρχεία που περιείχαν οι σκληροί δίσκοι που συνδέονταν σε routers της ASUS.

Ποια είναι τα routers που επηρεάζονται; Τα μοντέλα RT-AC66R, RT-AC66U, RT-N66R, RT-N66U, RT-AC56U, RT-N56R, RT-N56U, RT-N14U, RT-N16 και RT-N16R.

Η ευπάθεια αφορά σε όσους χρήστες έχουν ενεργοποιήσει μέσω του AiCloud (οι λειτουργίες Cloud Disk, Smart Access, Smart Sync φαίνεται πως ενεργοποιούν το κενό ασφαλείας) την https Web service πρόσβαση, με το κενό ασφαλείας να επιτρέπει την πλήρη πρόσβαση στους καταλόγους και στα αρχεία του χρήστη χωρίς να είναι απαραίτητη η ταυτοποίηση.

Οι κάτοχοι ASUS router καλό θα ήταν να αναβαθμίσουν το firmware της συσκευής, να αλλάξουν passwords –αν χρησιμοποιούν τους προεπιλεγμένους κωδικούς-και να απενεργοποιήσουν την δυνατότητα απομακρυσμένης διαχείρισης και των λειτουργιών Cloud και FTP αν δεν είναι απαραίτητες.
