I am using a MBPro (just received) and am continually seeing a corruption with remote access, unhindered, resulting in a missing Operating System (as per Applications, in System Profiler- No information found).
I see "sh" and "sntp" open quickly and close via Activity Monitor. I tried typing "shutdown -k now" and the reply is "Wall: can't open temporary file: Read only file system System shutdown has arrived but you'll have to do it yourself"
After less than 1 hr with a brand new laptop, with set-up assitance from Apple, I'm running a virtual system, and have no Applications listed in System Profiler. I lost my super user status, and am slowly losing all administrative authority.
I don't understand what's going on. "logind" is listed, on startup, in Activity Monitor, and when I try to use my firewall it's ineffective, whether using "Block all incoming connections" or the custom option adding specific Applications.
I would like to configure my ipfw, but I'm getting an error msg-" file or folder does not exist, in Terminal.
In single user mode, there are all kinds of disconcerting entries, about a memory leak, acpi disabled?? acpi enabled, got boot device-long file path-that includes Block storge device, bsd root: disk0s2, major 14, minor 2 com.apple.launchd 1 with an unkown ip address 5.1XX.98.75. MACx_swapon Success.
Is there a ssh,telnet, or remote access security compromise? I use my box for streaming radio, tight email control, and off line DVD/CD enjoyment. That's it no file storage. The only thing I have downloaded is Flash Player from adobe, with Apple's help- strange I thought. I use no perirpherals, other than a logitech mouse.
Thanks for your help.
