Re: Map behavior

By default, Little Snitch determines your location from your Language and Region settings in System Preferences. Right-click on the map to set it anywhere or let it be determined automatically.

Re: Little Snitch Network Monitor (v.4.0.2) displays nothing but window border in Sierra 10.12.6 (latest)

This is a known incompatibility with a third party driver and there is little we can do because it's of conceptual nature. Little Snitch works well with the mac as it is shipped by Apple. We'll update our download and shop pages really soon (tm), and the new pages have compatibility notes listing th...

Re: installation & corrupted disk

The map is not allocated until you open it for the first time. There should be no other "extras" using more resources than in LS 3. The map is open by default when you install LS 4, so that everybody can discover our cool new feature :-). So you open it at least once. When you close it, it...

Re: installation & corrupted disk

Version 4 has the Map View in Network Monitor. This is a system component which links tons of libraries, connects to several daemons and caches lots of vector data. So yes, it's more invasive, unless you keep the Map View closed.

Re: installation & corrupted disk

Installing software (including Little Snitch) cannot destroy your SSD. In your case, I'm quite sure the freeze was caused by the SSD. When you shut down your computer with a hard reset, you usually get a panic log (or something similar) and the computer asks you to send a report to Apple. When you g...

Re: No Map -- Only grid-lines displayed in geographic-window .

You might have denied Internet access to one of the geo daemons responsible for fetching map data.

If you remove the deny-rule, it takes a while until the daemon retries and the map updates. Try switching network, this often triggers an update.

Re: Little Snitch Network Monitor (v.4.0.2) displays nothing but window border in Sierra 10.12.6 (latest)

We cannot implement this mechanism because it works as follows: The KEXT identifies itself as being from com.apple and thus gets access to private API in the kernel. It then modifies the function which checks whether a library may be loaded. I don't know how precise it is, either it removes the prot...

Just install the latest 3.7.4 package and it should work. Some settings may have been modified during the upgrade, though, but not the rules.

Re: Little Snitch Network Monitor (v.4.0.2) displays nothing but window border in Sierra 10.12.6 (latest)

We have already been in contact with NVIDIA. The problem is as follows: If we set a flag in our executables which indicates that we care about security, code injection and these things, the kernel allows loading of libraries signed by us (obdev.at) and apple.com only, but not by NVIDIA. NVIDIA, on t...

Re: "The process has no code signature. The executable can be maliciously modified without being detected."

The reaction - a fix within a week - shows that Little Snitch indeed revealed a security risk. Luckily the developers are aware of this and provide a fix in a timely manner.

Re: Little Snitch Network Monitor (v.4.0.2) displays nothing but window border in Sierra 10.12.6 (latest)

Looks like the NVIDIA driver problem: The NVIDIA Graphics Drivers (as opposed to the original drivers provided by Apple) need to inject program code into running apps and Little Snitch (and other apps like iBooks) do not allow this due to security reasons. When Little Snitch needs to render on the d...

Re: output report go right to usbfunctinowrite?

Interesting... It's possible that refactoring (code size improvements, but fixes) broke something. I know that it did work when it was implemented. The most reliable way to find out what's going on is analytic debugging. I would change the C code to make a trigger pulse on an I/O line when `usbRxTok...

Re: output report go right to usbfunctinowrite?

Did you make a clean build after you defined USB_CFG_IMPLEMENT_FN_WRITEOUT? I have done a code review and think that it should work. In asmcommon.inc there are the lines: #if USB_CFG_IMPLEMENT_FN_WRITEOUT /* if we have data for endpoint != 0, set usbCurrentTok to address */ andi x3, 0xf ;[32] breq s...
