December 8 General Meeting— Jean MacDonald of App Camp for Girls
Nov 18th, 2014 by jyamada

The App Camp for Girls logoApp Camp for Girls is the brainchild of Jean MacDonald, who recognized that the world would be a richer place with more women involved in technology and science. And what better place to start than with young children who were given the opportunity to learn how fun and creative they can be while connecting and building real apps. Jean will share with us her experiences of founding and running App Camp for Girls.

Bonus: We heard you say that there is a lot of confusion about all the changes to iCloud in Yosemite and iOS 8. Come get your confusion cleared up during the question and answer hour.

Come join us at the Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center (Ecotrust Center), 721 NW Ninth Avenue. Question and answer hour starts at 6:30pm, with the main discussion starting around 7:30 pm and ending at 9 pm.

If you find that you want to divest yourself of your old Apple hardware to make way for something new and shiny then you can bring up to 5 items to swap at the meeting.

More about the Shellshock bug
Oct 1st, 2014 by jyamada

First off, the bad news: Mac OS X 10.6 and earlier operating systems are no longer supported and will not receive a fix from Apple.

The good news is that Apple has released official patches for 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion, and 10.9 Mavericks. And an enterprising group of open source folks have released instructions for patching older systems like 10.4 Tiger on PowerPC and 10.6 Snow Leopard on Intel.

The even better news is that you were probably not vulnerable in the first place.

Here’s more detail. A bug was discovered wherein the bash command line environment that is used in Mac OS X and other UNIX like operating systems could be tricked into running a line of maliciously crafted code. In general, an attacker would need to have physical access to your Mac in order to run the Terminal program.

There was a distinct danger for those people running servers connected to the internet because servers would open up the command line to provide extra services to internet users. These services are not turned on by default in Mac OS X. A user would have to have turned on Remote Management in the Sharing menu of their system preferences in order to have exposed themselves to the internet at large.

In summary: You were probably not at risk from this bug, and now there is a patch to fix the bug.
