KB-2389: Wake from sleep/screensaver GPs will log user out of system if a blank password is entered.

Mac & PC Management Service ,  

12 April,16 at 11:07 AM

Applies to: Centrify DirectControl 5.0.3 and below on Mac OS platforms




"Idle time starting screen saver" and "Wake up from sleep" Group Policies are enabled.

The computer is woken from sleep or screensaver and the screensaver login prompt is presented. 

If the Enter key is pressed without entering a password, the user will be logged out of the system completely. 




This is a known issue in our code.




Make sure to enter the password before hitting Enter.




This is targeted to be fixed in Centrify DirectControl 5.1
