ProSoft Engineering (Data Rescue 4) are first to reply:
Quote:We've already spoken to our developer regarding this. The software is not vulnerable to the Sparkle vulnerability due to the secure connection we use when connecting to our servers.
Which is confirmed by DR4 missing from the grep list in my second post.

Yeah, not every Sparkle based app is vulnerable. Only those without a secure endpoint for getting update info.

Which, in my case, turns out to be all but one: DR4. I just updated VLC, but it still shows up. GraphicConverter is another big one. I'm not giving up on EV, just yet, but I doubt it will ever see another update, anyway, so meh. A few others are handy utils that I will just have to keep a keen eye on. Tagr, Max, MacPaw Gemini, Transmission, Handbrake, The Unarchiver.

Do any of you use Transmission? I know I used to when I was on Mac. Seems that for a while if you downloaded transmission from the website you would get hit by this malware.

Yeah, filesystems in general, not just HFS, have been running out of headroom for decades.

We should have had arbitrary size key-value stores like 5 years ago.

RE: *cough*
Letting users deal directly with file systems is a disaster. Always was, but increasingly so.

Luckily, on OS X the user is shielded a little more from the nitty-gritty of file storage, and thus transitioning to different underpinnings can be done relatively easily. On Windows, such a move would mean weening users off of CP/M paradigms like "A: means floppy drive". That could prove to be a tough fight.

In fact, Apple seemed poised to make that jump a few years ago, but they backed out when the Pariahs of the world, the self-professed "power users" balked at the thought of having the arbitrary line of where control over their data shifted.

Most of Apple's apps are more than ready for the shift, though. Storage models are irrelevant to the user experience, as well they should be.

Google Docs does this.  It's not awesome.  It has folders, and lists of documents, but it lacks a conventional hierarchical structure that allows users to neatly organize things.  It entirely destroys the folder->document paradigm, and remarkably, Google's ability to return relevant documents in a search is abysmal.

Call me a power user if you must, but abstracting away the file system just makes systems harder to use.

RE: *cough*
the file system is rather important though many cases you need to be able to transfer information between one program to another such as converting image into a vector document which is then converted to format which Mastercam can read then import that into a design which suit and then can be milled out on a part. It is much more difficult to do something like that when you don't have access to the file system directly.

Those you classify as "power users" are still people who have things to do, and can't just wait until Apple or whatever comes up with an all-inclusive configuration to match their use case. If you just make it harder to do things that you hadn't thought of when you designed the system and just classify users that want to do so as "power users," you are merely just coming up with an excuse why your system can't handle other tasks.

Would Microsoft be the dominant OS if it just classified anyone who wanted to use the system a little more as "power users" instead of actually working to make the system better and able to handle those other tasks?

That's because it is a half-assed and retarded implementation and only removes functionality, rather than provide a better, broader user experience.

Where do I store this picture of my mom and my sister in Disneyland during the California leg of our 2013 US vacation? In /People/Family/Mom? In /People/Family/Sister? In /2013/July/24? In /Holidays/2013/US? In Places/Disneyland? Remember, you only get one choice and that will be the only path to that file, whether you are looking for pictures of mom, or pictures from your trip(s?) to Disneyland…

No, a file system is simply a system that stores to data in files and provides access to those files. Users merely need to be able to find their data, they need not  (and should not) be forced to subject themselves to the rigid, one-dimensional way the underlying system stores that data.

It is only "much more difficult" for you to rethink things because they might be different from what you are used to.

No, you are an idiot and still equate "power users" with the equivalent of "uses a wrench rather than a steering wheel because steering wheels are for wusses and power users use professional tools."

Microsoft is a company, not an OS.

Maybe. I don't think MS-DOS'/Windows' market dominance came about due to any truly technical merit, but rather through cunning business tactics.
