We have CylanceProtect installed on our macs and synerg-service is triggering a pivot violation and is getting shutdown.

Any thoughts on how to deal with this ?

figured that would most likely be the case. I sent the same note to support@symless.com.

so the issue was completely related to cylance. I had our security folks create an exception for synergy and now it working just fine between linux and mac

nope, at least not as of 2.08 which I just installed on my new mac and realized the problem was back. Best you can do is ask your IT guys to white list synergy in Cylance.

This isn't a threat or a bug. The service uses coroutines internally to perform some async network i/o. Switching (or 'pivoting') stacks is a completely normal part of these operations.

An exception must be added for Synergy to function.

Yes I had. It added as an exception by our IT Dept. Unfortunately exceptions are on a per machine, not software bases, at least where I work.
