Description (last modified by Kevin)

To Whom It May Concern,

Hello. First I want to thank you for making such a great product! I've been using Cyberduck for a few years now and I've never had any major problems. Even now, I'm not having a major problem, but I am concerned because of the alert messages I'm receiving. I've generally kept up to date with the latest Cyberduck releases and I've been running 4.4.3 (14140) before the problem started occurring. Although I can't be sure the problem didn't start when I updated to the latest version. My issue is, lately (about the past couple months) whenever logging into any of my FTP accounts in Cyberduck I get this alert message: "Cyberduck wants to use your confidential information stored in '...' in your keychain." Below that it says: "Do you want to allow access to this item?" Then my options are: Always Allow, Deny, Allow I've always just been choosing "Allow", but I don't think that's a good idea and I'd like to clear up this issue. I've looked up this issue on your website and found these tickets from 5 years ago: https://trac.cyberduck.io/ticket/3336 https://trac.cyberduck.io/ticket/2878 However, following the history of this issue, it keeps getting resolved with a newer version, but then it always seems to become an issue again. The last note on ticket 2878 is: "Summary changed from Password in non-default keychain are copied to default one to Password in non-default keychain are copied to login keychain"

Please forgive my ignorance, but I don't know if this is a fix I should apply somehow or if it is a note intended for the programer or something else.

For the past few years since I've been using Cyberduck with the same FTP accounts, this has never been a problem for me. My only guess is that all of my accounts are FTP accounts and not SFTP. Although that may apply more to the other issue I'm having, the "Unsecured FTP connection" alert message, but I'll make a separate ticket for that issue. Though both of these issues started at the same time.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Sincerely, Kevin

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

Cyberduck finds a password to connect to the server in your Keychain.app and because it was saved by a thirdparty application or a prior version of Cyberduck with a different signature, the system asks you to confirm access.
