Security Nightmare - Software Debugging

  • 0:00 - 0:05
    Debugging statements left in the code may even come up with a security problem.
  • 0:05 - 0:13
    In Mac OS versions 10.7.2/10.7.3, there was a security issue because a programmer
  • 0:13 - 0:17
    had left debugging print statements in the code.
  • 0:17 - 0:23
    This would result in the following situation--you as a user would enter your password into the Mac
  • 0:23 - 0:30
    the Mac would then let you in or not let you in but at the same time would store your password
  • 0:30 - 0:35
    in the clear in, a log that would be visible for anyone--
  • 0:35 - 0:41
    anyone with access to the machine of course, and this again would require a password.
  • 0:41 - 0:46
    On a multi-user machine, for instance, or somebody having physical access to a hard drive,
  • 0:46 - 0:52
    a mean checker could not go and retrieve your password in the clear,
  • 0:52 -
    and that's simply because of some left debugging statement in there.
