XFENCE beta 1.8.90 released

Hi,

 

We have published an updated version of the standalone XFENCE beta, version 1.8.90, which should fix reported kernel panics on macOS Mojave by disabling NVRAM protections, as we could not find a way to monitor NVRAM changes reliably.

 

The new version is available for download from the XFENCE beta project on https://beta.f-secure.com and existing users should get an update notification today.

 

Remember to _disable XFENCE_ before installing the new version. After the upgrade has finished, you need to reboot to take the new version into use.

Re: XFENCE beta 1.8.90 released

Thanks a lot for this update. Can you please elaborate on what the security implications are of “disabling nvram protections” on macOS?

 

thanks!
