Apple’s newest operating system, Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion), is now available for download at no cost, for computers purchased with CU-Boulder funds, via the campus’s Apple volume licensing agreement at http://oit.colorado.edu/apple-software/mountain-lion.
Symantec has released a notification stating users that utilize a MacBook Air (Model 5,2) or a MacBook Pro (Model 10,1) should not enable the PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE) feature. Enabling the feature will create problems at boot-time that will render the MacBook un-bootable.
Due to past issues when upgrading OS X, Symantec is advising that users currently encrypted with PGP Whole Disk Encryption or SEE Full Disk Encryption for Macs should NOT upgrade to OS X 10.8 when made available by Apple.
Symantec will release more information once it is available.
