PGP BEYOND DANGEROUS
Those bastards at PGP were already the gold standard for making it impossible to reach them. Now, Norton has nailed the coffin shut by thumbing their noses at Mac users. I have paid version 10.1.1.10 but can I find the upgrade button to 10.1.2? Hell no!
For most needs, Lion's new Whole Disk Encryption will do fine but no more sending PGP disk attachments, it looks like. I now send documents by encrypted PDF in Preview but that still doesn't cover all of the uses I would put PGP to.
For example, Lion Whole Disk Encryption will only work when there is a system installed. So in cases where I would create a PGP Disk and burn it to DVD, it would appear I am out of luck, (Unless I can find a way to keep using 10.1.1.10 in Lion.)
I was already pissed off with PGP because somehow I found myself no longer able to run DiskWarrior on PGP Disks. I wrote to Alsoft to ask if they knew anything. Their tech guru replied:
"Ok, I've installed PGP onto my computer and I see the basic problem.
When the new PGP is installed, it does something to modify the
IORegistry (which is what keeps track of all hardware and mounted
devices on the computer) and has an effect on the entire functionality
of the computer, not just PGP-modified disks.
For example, with PGP installed, DiskWarrior showed that my computer's
main hard drive, that was currently running the active operating system
on the computer, had no partition map! This, of course, would be
impossible! This indicates that the partition map was being obscured
from our view. Uninstall PGP - and everything is normal. I found other
similar anomalies in my testing.
My guess is that they are modifying something in the low-level of the
operating system in case the user wants to utilize the Whole Disk
Encryption feature. To me, this is beyond dangerous.
So, that's what is happening. Nothing do be done to get past whatever
changes they are making. Sorry I don't have a workaround for you to
rebuild the directory of the PGP Disk Image files."
