Apple Wins Subpoena Request -- In the latest update in Apple's quest to squelch information leaks, Judge James Kleinberg of Santa Clara County Superior Court ruled last Friday that the news site O'Grady's PowerPage must divulge its confidential sources, describing the information as "stolen property." The judge was careful to note that his ruling should not be construed more broadly than Apple's right to subpoena information from PowerPage's ISP Nfox. The judge also made a distinction between "the public interest" (served by whistleblowers disclosing health, safety, or welfare hazards) and "the interested public" (served by news and enthusiast Web sites). The full text of the decision can be downloaded from The Mac Observer site. Jason O'Grady has said he will appeal the decision. [ACE]
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.*.
