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

Mac OS X 10.0.1 Available -- A mere three weeks after the initial release of Mac OS X 10.0, Apple has released 10.0.1, a 4.1 MB update available via Mac OS X's Software Update control panel (which itself requires a 700K update before it gets the 10.0.1 Update). According to Apple, improvements include better support for third party USB devices, improved performance, better overall application and Classic-mode stability, enhanced support for iTunes, and support for the Secure Shell service (albeit through an older version than is commonly available elsewhere).
