(Flash, Java, Silverlight)
No actual damage done for three reasons:
1) the malware was designed to stay dormant for 72 hours (presumably to make it harder to figure out where it came from)
2) Transmission, the vendor, responded promptly with clear and accurate messages to users, and, with an updated version of Transmission that removed the malware. (Bad Version only there for 36 to 48 hours)
3) Apple responded quickly by revoking the developer cert used to sign the malware, and adding the malware itself to XProtect. Revoking the cert stopped the malicious installer from passing gatekeeper, and adding the malware itself to XProtect prevents it from running, even on systems that installed the malware before the dev cert was fixed.
The end result of all this is that it seems like none of the few thousand people who contracted this malware lost any data. So – in real terms this was not actually a major disaster, it was however a near miss!

1. Limit the number of emails that are displayed in the recent emails of the iPhone.
Limit the downloading of emails to the iPhone. Try creating folders for different categories of mail, using the tools on the server.
2. When you click on a purchased TV program, can you set the preferences to show only the most recent episodes, rather than the whole list of episodes? Otherwise you do a lot of right swiping to find the desired episode.
We are not sure
The download buffering estimate seems wrong.
This is because of the way Apple TV attempts to estimate, based on the first few bytes, and the byte rate average.
3. When I add events to my Gmail calendar, the events show up in my iPhone calendar, but not vice versa. Can I fix this to work both ways?
On the iPhone, under calendar settings, set default calendar to Google.
The iPhone fetches data from multiple calendars, but creates events in only one calendar.
4. How do I delete a recovery disk (recovery partition).
Normally, you only see the Mac partitions — the recovery partitions are only shown if you use an “option” boot.
Frankly, you should not delete the recovery partition. It is necessary.
5. Is there a way to prevent iCloud from opening upon startup? I have an ATT cell phone modem, called “ATT All Access”. I am shown two successive iCloud sign-in windows, which takes forever to connect.
