Stop Network Filter without entering a password

On OS X 10.9.5 as a standard user we are able to Stop the Network Filter without being asked for an admin or user password.
Is this normal? It doesn't 'fee' right.
Edit: Forgot to mention this is LS 3.5.3 on OS X 10.9.5

Little Snitch + Mac Avast web-shield?

I anyone using LS in combination with the Avast Mac Free Anti-virus? Apparently, one of the features is something called 'web-shield' which scans web pages before they are loaded into the browser. The Avast software does this by creating a local proxy on the machine and redirects all web requests to...

Re: Safari 5.1, WebProcess and LittleSnitch

If a connection is established by »Safari via WebProcess« it is covered by your existing Safari rules. If a connection is established by »WebProcess« it is necessary to create rules for WebProcess as well. But I'm unable to reproduce the latter case. Is anyone seeing a connection attempt from WebPr...

Re: Safari 5.1, WebProcess and LittleSnitch

I can't quite figure out what is going on with these either.

In earlier versions of Safari, the process named "WebKitPlugin' would handle plugins such as Flash.
However, in Safari 5.1, LS sometimes shows the process loading Flash as 'PluginProcess' and sometimes shows it as 'WebProcess'

LS missing connections by Norton Anti Virus?

According to this post the SymDaemon component of NAV 11 makes frequent outgoing connections to Symantec as part of its functioning.

However, I have not seen any LS alerts for it and I don't have any rules already established for it.

Is LS missing the SymDaemon connections?

Via Rules

I have just installed LS 2.2.2 in Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and I am wondering about the "via rules" which are mentioned on the website. I can't find any mention of that concept in the built-in help or within the LS Configuration settings. I had imagined that "via rules" would allow us...

Symantec has a Mac offering called "Norton Confidential" that apparently has a feature which is supposed to prevent local files from being modified.

So far, there has been no concrete evidence presented in this thread showing that LS is actually being bypassed! The initial post about ImageWell has been proven false. The other examples of DragThing and KIT are equally without merit. This is not to say that it is not possible for a malicious app t...

I KNOW for a fact that Drag Thing bypasses Little Snitch. DragThing may be using expiring serial numbers. They won't expire if your machine does not have network access... But if you have a net connection and DT is blocked, then it can expire itself. In my tests, LittleSnitch 1.2.4 always notifies ...

I use Default Folder, and if the warnning of code injection is on then I get warned very often that Defaul Folder is attempting to inject code. I can disable this warning, but this then applies to all code injections, not just to the ones that are wanted. What version of Default Folder are you usin...

iGreg, do you happen to be running any Application Enhancer modules?
If so, I recommend adding all LittleSnitch processes to the 'Master Exclude List". That will significantly reduce memory usage.

Your a fucking retard I think what you meant to say is, "You're a fucking retard." Your is the second person possessive of the pronoun 'you', as in: Your mother should have had an abortion. You're is a contraction for 'you are', as in: You're not worth the time it took to type this post.
