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.
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.
