Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal

VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.

PageMistake -- In TidBITS-317 I reported Adobe had released an updater that upgrades PageMill from 1.0 to 1.0.1. I also reported some users of the update were experiencing color shifts in graphics edited through PageMill. Adobe has decided the color shift problem is severe enough to warrant a recall and has withdrawn the update. Adobe hopes to release a corrected version 1.0.2 in a few weeks. Although the problem appears to happen only on 68K Macs (and usually only if you have more than 256 colors showing onscreen), Adobe's engineers are not convinced it couldn't happen on a Power Mac. Remember, if you use 1.0.1 and experience a color shift in an open image, do not save your file, or the shift will be saved in the image. [TJE]
