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.*.

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.0 for the lucky few who have received their shiny new Mac Pro models (see “Mac Pro Available to Order, Shipping in February 2014,” 20 December 2013). This firmware update improves system reliability during reboot, resolves an issue with memory self-test, and improves graphics power management when using Boot Camp. As always, be careful not to interrupt the update process when applying a firmware update. (Free, 4.7 MB)
