1Password & Chrome on the Mac: “code signature could not be verified”

Over the past two weeks I’ve noticed that on my iMac 1Password and Chrome have not been playing nice together.  When i try to use 1Password to fill in passwords in Chrome I’m seeing the message “code signature could not be verified” pop-up.  In typical 1Password fashion the message includes a link to the troubleshooting guide with steps that need to be taken to resolve the problem.  I thought I ran this down twice or three times.  Was it my AV?  Was it a needed login?  Was it a needed update?   It turns out the fix was incredibly simple.  Chrome had gotten stuck on a version upgrade.  Opening up Preferences from the Crome menu you need to look at the ‘About’ section.  My instance was not up to date.  The fix was easy; I just selected ‘Relaunch’ from that same menu.  Problem solved.

Good References on Securing Mac OS/X

After reading Thomas’ article on re-evaluating the safety of Mac OS/X last week I finally managed to bring most of my Apple equipment up to current.  I checked all the network devices and updated most of those.  My Windows machines are all current.  I do have that one Mac that won’t run a current OS.  I read a great tips article over at Naked Security about bringing that as close to protected as possible.
