Thanks Raam!

This update had been triggering Little Snitch every hour or so and I kept hitting “deny once”, as I wanted to (later when not working) look at unchecking whatever application’s “update automatically” was presumably doing this, rather than flatout deny forever on the firewall or deleting the updater without removing its trigger.

Of course that night I forgot to look into it and after watching a movie with front row in bed, I fell asleep… until little snitch popped up behind front row due to this update hitting it and voiceover decided to read the damn thing out very loudly. Scared the hell out me!

What I still don’t get, is why they don’t just check for updates when you start the relevant app, like anyone else, rather than having this background rubbish, which without a firewall would have essentially been chatting away over my internet connection without me even knowing!
