#16280 closed crash (fixed)

Crash following certificate dialogue for newly-added XMPP account

Reported by: Robby Owned by:
Milestone: Adium 1.5.5 Component: Service/XMPP (Jabber)
Version: Severity: regression
Keywords: Cc:
Patch Status:



Adium 1.6hg crashes when clicking either of the "Continue" and "Cancel" buttons in the certificate dialogue for a newly-created XMPP account.

I'm attaching crash logs for both cases. They seem identical except that the first time I clicked "Cancel", it was different (I think).


Adium 1.5.4 is fine. For me this happens every time with this account, I haven't tried others.

I am seeing this too, though only once I try to bring over settings from another computer.

I am trying to port settings from one computer to another I have 1.6hgr5303 i have the same version on the other computer I over write ~/Library/.../Adium 2.0 and the .plist with the ones from my old computer On the new computer, adium starts fine, but then when it gives me a popup about certificate not recognized, and i click accept, it crashes the entire adium

Please also see duplicate of this here

The weird thing here, is that I have one computer, with 1.6hgr5303 that it DOES work on. My other computer, with the same version, crashes - even if I setup the acct from scratch.

There must be *some* workaround.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

(In c71cfe104f07) Fix an overrelease of this SecTrustRef object, causing a crash when closing an untrusted certificate window.

Fixes #16280

Just as an FYI...

The crashing stopped for me and I changed nothing in Adium.

Possible workaround: I think maybe adding my organizations root certificate to mac OSX's 'Keychain Access' app, then restarting the computer, may have rid of it. This is a way you can get around having to click 'Accept' every time you get a certificate that your app or mac doesnt know about.

Yes, Adium wouldn't complain about the certificate once it's in Keychain Access.

Thijs' change does indeed fix the crash.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
