Re: Mac doesn't start after installing Little Snitch 4.0.5

Just a note: LittleSnitch.kext is code signed with an appropriate certificate. Since you say the "problem did not resolve until i finally removed: ParagonSnapshot.kext and VDMounter.kext", I assume that one of these was not properly signed.

Re: Rule Groups: Great idea but not very useful right now. I have suggestions!

If we make a seamless scriptable import of .lsrules files, every malware can use it for their purpose. We therefore insist on loading from a remote machine (with valid SSL certificate). This is not easily available to malware running locally.

Re: Rule Groups: Great idea but not very useful right now. I have suggestions!

This is currently not possible. We have not implemented it because it's hard to explain the security implications. Every intruder would have an easy way to make rules as he wishes. And if you synchronize the file among computers, access to one of them is sufficient to add rules. What exactly is your...

You probably have Little Snitch 4.3 nightly installed. This version has greatly improved performance for large rule sets.

Re: How to disable notification on denied incoming connection?

There is an option: Make a rule which allows incoming connections. If you want to prevent alerts for outgoing connections, you make a rule which allows or denies the connection. Similarly, if you want to prevent notifications for incoming connections, make a rule and decide how to handle them.

Re: Can't update Little Snitch to 4.2.1 from 4.2.0 on Mojave

Little Snitch Installer won't work when a copy is started, not the original directly on the read-only disk image. It SHOULD print an error message, but due to an other problem it seems to hang before it gets to this check. I think that the hang you experience may be related to App Translocation. Ple...

Re: [False alarm] Kernel panics since Little Snitch 4.1.3 (5187)

Thanks for the update!

If you have such a hardware problem, it's likely that Little Snitch Network Monitor triggers it with all the animations taking place all over the time.

We all hope for some cool and affordable new hardware :-)

Re: High CPU and disk usage for 1-2 minutes after login

Thanks for reporting this! Little Snitch is reading code signatures in order to determine the team names of your programs. There is a caching algorithm so that this info does not have to be read on every reboot or login, but due to a bug, the cache does not work for rules stored in the user's home d...

Yes. In order to symbolicate the sample: Which version of LS is this (preferably including build number)?

Re: High CPU and disk usage for 1-2 minutes after login

While it's spinning, can you please make a sample of Little Snitch Daemon in Activity Monitor? The other thing that might happen is that Little Snitch Daemon is verifying the code signature of all your programs. This should only happen after an upgrade from Little Snitch 3, though.

Re: High CPU and disk usage for 1-2 minutes after login

You may have subscribed to a rule group with lots of rules. We are currently working on optimizing this. Loading many rules and distributing the rule set among Little Snitch's component may take quite a while if there are several 1000 rules.

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

"Hide from Network Monitor" rules are now available in version 4.1.4 nightly (build 5188). Some fine tuning is still required, but the feature will be in the next release. Note: If you add a rule to hide connections from Network Monitor, connections stored so far are not automatically dele...

Re: How to disable notification on denied incoming connection?

That's another possibility. If you just want to silence notifications for incoming connections, make a rule for them in Little Snitch. Without a rule, incoming connections are denied. So, if you make a deny-rule, the behavior is unchanged, but no notification will be shown.
