    I left my Mac on overnight, as usual, and in the morning, Little Snitch had popped up an alert, saying PGP Desktop had been trying to connection to a server. It happened 2 nights ago, and last night, and hasn't happened before. The only thing my computer was doing was downloading torrents.

    Any explanations?

    No, I've already got it set to allow updates.

    It's probably nothing malicious, but I thought I'd post it anyway.

    It's trying to connect to an email server. Did you recently enable email encryption (or did you never turn it off)?

    As people write glowing reviews of Little snitch, I found it a bit obtrusive. I've not found any instance of an app that shouldn't be allowed access to the intarweb.

    Turned it on, but never enabled it on any accounts. Makes sense.
