    These kexts are listed under key OSKextSigExceptionList

    So not a problem, but funny

    ROFL !

    Rominator if that was the case we’d all download it a dozen times…of course money should come out of Apple’s pocket.

    After all, netkas like few others, has done plenty to popularize Apple’s products, and filling their pockets with money in the process.

    ’tis the Holiday Season for giving back. 🙂

    But really, what is Apple’s intentions for putting those text strings in there?

    Almost 100% sure that nobody on Apple put that in there manually.

    Here’s why:
    * Kernel Extensions have to be signed to pass Gatekeeper validation.
    * Lots and lots and lots of old extensions aren’t signed, so Apple must ship this “OSKextSigExceptionList” which is a list of extension-names that are allowed to not be signed with a valid developer key.
    * This list is almost 100% sure built automatically. Remember that OS X has a feature that anonymously sends data back to Apple, to tell them about how you’re using the Mac. This list can include stuff like all kernel extensions installed, etc.
    * So Apple just has LOTS of hackintosh users (note there is also chameleon kexts listed in the exceptions in that file), and their tool AUTOMATICALLY looks at all Kernel Extensions used out in the world, and puts in automatic exceptions for all ones commonly used by people.

    Still, it was funny. But nothing to see here 😀

    Congrats to Netkas and Chameleon for making it into OS X 😉

    Besides, Apple doesn’t have a big problem with hackintoshes. It drives people to real Mac hardware when people get tired of manual maintenance work 😉

    Well, regardless if it’s added by an Apple staffer on purpose or automatically scraped from OS X users it’s still lulzy to see OSX86 kexts being listed on a vanilla system. 🙂
