Attention: macOS code signing

Post by Arne Scheffler » Thu Sep 12, 2019 11:45 am

Hi,
please make sure that if you code sign your plug-ins that the code signature is valid. We now see plug-ins that are signed, but with an invalid code signature which will trigger a crash on load in any hardened runtime enabled host.

To verify that your code signature is valid please run

Code: Select all

codesign -v PLUGINPATH
The result should be either no output at all or

Code: Select all

code object is not signed at all
Because unsigned code will still be loaded if allowed by the host, but invalid signed code will be rejected.

Cheers,
Arne
