Find Which Applications Phone Home with VirusBarrier X6

Worried about rogue applications or spyware "phoning home" with your private data? Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers. Once you know which apps are phoning home, you can block or allow each individually, and you can even block or allow specific ports for each application, to ensure that your private data stays private.

Mac Publishing Buys MacCentral -- Mac Publishing, the folks who publish the online and print editions of Macworld and the online MacWEEK.com, have announced their acquisition of MacCentral, a Nova Scotia-based Macintosh news and information service. The terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Mac Publishing's specific goals for MacCentral aren't clear, but it's likely Mac Publishing hopes to utilize MacCentral's daily content to beef up the relatively small amount of material available each day from MacWEEK.com.
