Wow I just came here because I seen good old Little Snitch had been updated
and then I stumbled came across this post...
Now I know I'm not going crazy, I'm with you in this issue.
I have been a Little Snitch users now for years with everything
running smoothly, nothing unusual, no surprises.
Now as of recently all sorts of standard apps started behaving, in my opinion strangely.
Apps as far as I recall never acted this way before.
So I started monitoring all them more closely and wondering why
any internet connection would be necessary in the first place?
At first I allowed them to connect but it bothered me as to why this was mysteriously
occurring in the first place, yet I was worried it just might be part
of the Apple system and I didn't want to muck anything up...
In the end I still don't think it's normal behavior for these standard apps
to be behaving this way so I went ahead and just blocked them all for good.
Which I honestly think actually improved my overall system performance.
Perhaps now I can finally get some answers to what exactly is going on?
Here's a list of apps that started acting weird, these alerts never occurred prior.
Which really makes me wonder, why all of a sudden now but never before?
I know there are more but all this seems strange to me.Address Book
- (what?)Disk Utility
- (really since when? MOST ACTIVE!)nmbd
- (very active.)TextEdit
- (would ONLY happen when saving.)System Preferences
- (only has happened once.)
has a 11 ports listening andntpd
has four ports listening.PubSub
is acting up again as well. (just updated safari/itunes)Well hopefully someone can provide real answers here.
all my research "g gle" has come up with nothing.
