Maintain has released an updated version of its general purpose utility for Mac OS X, Cocktail
. Reportedly, the new release adds clearing of the latest (F and G) variants of the RSPlug trojan horse and clearing of the Inqtana.C worm. The release also contains updated Automator actions.
Citing major improvements on the clear potentially harmful files procedure, Maintain reveals that Cocktail 4.3.3 (Leopard Edition), the latest maintenance update to the software, “contains major improvements on the clear potentially harmful files procedure,” adding clearing of the latest (F and G) variants of the RSPlug trojan horse and clearing of the Inqtana.C worm.
“The update is highly recommended for all users of Cocktail (Leopard Edition),” Maintain stresses. “This version requires Mac OS X / Mac OS X Server 10.5 or later and is tested for compatibility with Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server 10.5.7. Cocktail 4.3 (Tiger Edition) is the latest version of Cocktail for users running Mac OS X 10.4 – 10.4.11,” the developer explains.
Cocktail is a digital toolset that helps Leopard
users squeeze every drop of power from their Macs. The application is basically aimed at simplifying the use of advanced UNIX functions, giving you access to hidden Mac OS X settings. It lets you tweak them more thoroughly, in the sense that you can, for instance, enable or disable journaling for disks, repair disk permissions, or set disk spindown time. Additionally, Cocktail lets you customize the look and feel of Finder, Dock and login window, and makes it easy to prebind and re-prebind your entire system or selected folders, run cron scripts, change startup mode and language, force empty trash, update "whatis," locate databases, etc.
