Sorry for the long quiet period on the Xfence front. We concentrated our team effort on the Mojave release and are currently working on a small maintenance release for SAFE MAC. After that we will take a look at the Xfence beta and hopefully solve the crash issues on it.
I'm really glad to hear XFENCE has not been forgotten. Are there any unofficial (and totally non-committal) ETAs on XFENCE getting some attention?
+1 Crashing in a few seconds of logging in if XFence is enabled.
For whatever reason, my second Admin account on this mac does not crash. That's an account I only log in to do high-level admin things, and that account seems to run fine.
UPDATE: My seldom-used admin account also became effected, so I had to:
- Restart in Safe Mode, then
- Remove the kernel from Library/Extensions
I'll await that update.
Such unrealiable development cycle management and unresponsive support are determining project’s feature; I see no light at the end ... And on the other hand, Apple integrated it’s functionalities into the latest macOS.
I have same issue - but my MacBook pro will crash *every time* after system start-up.
On my case, the issue started with me enabling the XFENCE on Computer Protection for Mac version 17.2. On macOS 10.13 High Sierra.
As I was unable to use my computer, I restored the system from Time Machine backup.
Then shortly afterwards, a notification of update for Computer Protection for Mac started to pop up.
Once I installed the update, the crash returned - without me enabling the XFENCE! (The crashes were accompanied with multiple XFENCE dialogs where various [apparently] system components requested access to various system files.)
The same issue persisted after updating the macOS to 10.14 Mojave, as well as the latest OS update 10.14.1.
A support case has been created. I was instructed by F-Secure support specialist to remove the XFENCE.kext in Single User Mode, after updating the Computer Protection.
I did that, but it DID NOT clear this problem. Computer Protection for Mac updated from version 17.2 to the current one, with XFENCE.kext deleted from /Library/Extensions, still causes my Mac to crash right after start-up, before login.
Full system restore from Time Machine, restoring the Computer Protection to version 17.2, is the only way out.
Integrated into the latest macOS? Only a small subset, to be sure. I really want to have XFence back up and running. Without it, I lose a ton of security.
I wish they'd release a supported version of it already. I'm happy to plunk down cold hard cash to keep this running on my machine.
