    Hey folks, I let my cousin borrow my MacBook for a week and told him the admin password (bad idea). Somehow he enabled some security feature that requests that I permit TCP traffic on various ports (HTTP, HTTPS, etc.) and I have to keep on hitting YES, forever, yes, please permit this.

    How do I turn this off? I checked under Security but it only seems to talk about how I can set up a firewall for incoming traffic; I can't seem to figure out how to kill the warnings for outgoing traffic. Please advise!

    UPDATE: I'm pretty sure this is SecurityAgent.app

    Aha! Thank you kind sir. I removed that and I'm guessing all is well.

    I don't know if it's actually gone... I just dragged the Little Snatch Configuration icon from the Applications menu to the trash can. I did a ps -elf|grep SecurityAgent afterward and it showed up still, but I thought SecurityAgent was some inherent core app.

    Since I've removed it I haven't seen any more popups, but I'll have to test drive it more.
