macOS\iOS App Transport Security Error in FMX

May 6th, 2020 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

Recently we were updating a system we had built for one of our customers. One of the things we needed to do was update the macOS applications for 64bit.

There are 3 applications in the suite that support macOS, and the first two converted very smoothly thanks to the 64bit macOS support in RAD Studio 10.3.3. Pretty much all that was needed was a recompile and to run them through the automated test suite.

Ansible 2.6.1 Security Fixes

July 23rd, 2018 Posted by News, RedHat No Comment yet

There is a point release for Ansible that addresses a few issues, including a couple of Security issues:

  • Security Fix – avoid loading host/group vars from cwd when not specifying a playbook or playbook base dir
  • Security Fix – avoid using ansible.cfg in a world writable dir.

This is in addition to the Security fix in 2.6 that caused the no_log option to be ignored in certain situations, potentially resulting in private task info being logged.

At a minimum we’re recommending our clients move to the 2.6 Stable release, although we haven’t seen any issues with 2.6.1 in our testing.
