Track Bandwidth Use with VirusBarrier X6

If you have monthly bandwidth limits, it's useful to know how much data you have used so far to avoid overage charges or being shut off by your ISP. But how do you determine how much data your Mac has transferred? Open VirusBarrier X6's Traffic window to see both current and cumulative traffic, and you can also create warnings when your data usage - incoming, outgoing, or both - exceeds an amount you specify.

Internet Explorer Updates Address Vulnerability

Send Article to a Friend

Internet Explorer Updates Address Vulnerability -- Microsoft has released a pair of Internet Explorer updates aimed at resolving a security vulnerability related to digital certificates - in the right situation, an attacker could use it to enable a number of identity spoofing attacks. The updates - version 5.1.6 for Mac OS 9 and 5.2.2 for Mac OS X - also include all other recent fixes. Microsoft made no release notes available, but it's unlikely that the new versions incorporate any new features. Microsoft didn't even update Internet Explorer's installer in the Mac OS X version, which unnecessarily insists on quitting all active applications. Version 5.1.6 is a 5.4 MB download; version 5.2.2 is a 7.2 MB download. [ACE]
