[NPL] Mac OS 9 Utility for NetWare Users
From: Brian Bergstrand ( Subject: [ANNC]NWClient Auto Logout Friday December 17th - Macnn ( Bugnet yesterday reported on a security issue with Mac OS 9 Multiple Users, noting that when NetWare users log out from Mac OS 9, all of their NetWare NDS connections remain active and open to subsequent users. (This may be identical to an issue reported where "NDS client for Mac OS 9 fails to log the user out of the NDS tree when s/he logs out of the MacOS 9 system.) "the problem stems from Mac OS 9's use of a closed security database. When users log out from the OS, it checks for and closes all active AppleShare mounted drives, but it doesn't check for any mounted NetWare volumes, nor does it provide any sort of Application Programming Interface (API) for third-party developers like Prosoft. " NWClient Auto Logout (NWAL) addresses the problem stated above. NWAL is a background application that hooks into Mac OS 9's Multiple User support, and...
