Find Which Applications Phone Home with VirusBarrier X6

Worried about rogue applications or spyware "phoning home" with your private data? Turn on VirusBarrier's Anti-Spyware feature, and it will alert you to applications that attempt to connect to remote servers. Once you know which apps are phoning home, you can block or allow each individually, and you can even block or allow specific ports for each application, to ensure that your private data stays private.

A Trio of Radio Interviews

Send Article to a Friend

A Trio of Radio Interviews -- In conjunction with the 15th anniversary of TidBITS and the release of our Take Control ebooks about Tiger, I've been doing the radio show rounds. On 27-Apr-05 I took a break from tracking down a maddening bug to talk about the history of TidBITS and the Macintosh with Gene Steinberg of the Tech Night Owl Live. Then, on 30-Apr-05, I spent a snappy 10 minutes chatting to Scott Sheppard of Inside Mac Radio. And then late on 01-May-05, I had one of my always-enjoyable discussions with Chuck Joiner on the User Group Report. [ACE]
