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.

DocHaven 4.2

Send Article to a Friend

Some time has elapsed since our last check-in with Holy Mackerel Software's cross-platform document management software DocHaven, but the program is still going strong, having recently received a significant update. Version 4.2 lets users compress files into zip archives, add User or Client photos, and provide distinct item descriptions for each Group, and extends support for Ubuntu 9. Also, each Group now has a designated Administrator, a View option has been added to the Find menu, and the Transfer window now displays the estimated time remaining on the current transfer. The latest version requires you are running Mac OS X 10.5 or later. Full release notes are available on the Holy Mackerel Software Web site. ($40 per user new, free update, 18.3 MB)
