Code signature problems with Homebrewed SSH

Postby nchammas » Mon May 07, 2018 6:37 pm

Little Snitch is denying connections for GitHub Desktop via SSH. GitHub Desktop itself doesn't have a code signature issue according to Little Snitch. It's just the SSH executable it uses that does. I installed OpenSSH via Homebrew. Reinstalling it didn't seem to help.

How can I tell if I actually have an issue with SSH vs. just Little Snitch being incorrect (from a user perspective) in its blocking? I've disabled the rule, but if possible I'd like to resolve the root issue.

Scratch that. Looks like the rule is reenabled automatically by Little Snitch.

The strange thing is that other apps that are accessing the network via SSH -- via the same SSH executable, in fact! -- don't have any code signing issues. Visual Studio Code is an example of this.

e.g.
* This is OK: /Applications/Visual Studio Code.app via /usr/local/Cellar/openssh/7.7p1/bin/ssh
* But this is not: /Applications/GitHub Desktop.app via /usr/local/Cellar/openssh/7.7p1/bin/ssh
* And both /Applications/Visual Studio Code.app and /Applications/GitHub Desktop.app by themselves are OK.

Anyone have any idea what's going on here?
