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.*.

Fantastical 1.2.2

Send Article to a Friend

Flexibits has released Fantastical 1.2.2 with a variety of fixes and improvements. While largely a maintenance update, this release of the calendar utility does include a few handy additions, including vertical resizing of the event list (Mac OS X 10.7 Lion only), searching in event notes, and displaying “Tomorrow” instead of tomorrow’s date in the event list. Among the several fixes, this update addresses an issue where some newly added accounts wouldn’t sync in Fantastical and a failure to update some events for Google accounts. It also adds some localization improvements (including Australian time zones) and modifies its subscription sync behavior to mimic iCal’s refresh intervals. Note that the update may prompt you for access to your keychain, which is necessary in preparing for the Gatekeeper security function in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. ($19.99 new from Flexibits or the Mac App Store, free update, 8.8 MB, release notes)
