    I have question about the alf.plist.

    I did a clean installation and did take a look in my preference folder and opened alf.plist. And it is full with blizzard stuff updater,diablo 2 to starcraft 2. I don't own any game from blizzard so how did they get there? Or is it some default settings?

    I assume you're talking about com.apple.alf.plist. If so, a very quick Google search tells me that it's just the application-level firewall configuration file for Leopard. It contains a list of apps that are allowed access to the network.

    And indeed, mine has several blizzard games listed though to my knowledge I've never run any of them. Either they're in there by default so because Apple wanted popular games to not have firewall issues, or some other app adds them.

    Either way, it's fine.
