Default CS3 and Firewall on Macs

If you install a full CS3 Suite, check your firewall settings under System Prefs > Sharing. It's highly possible that Adobe turned off your firewall in order to turn on Version Cue, but the software doesn't turn the firewall back on.

Just think of the liability they're opening themselves up for with a stunt like that.

I strongly suspect it was unintentional, but yes, both Adobe and we can be glad Macs haven't yet been as targeted for malicious mayhem as PCs.

It strikes me as a bit odd that they attempted to turn any bit of Version Cue on at all, and of course, most odd that that bit involved the firewall. They didn't turn VC itself on by default. You have to know where to find it to do that. It almost makes me wonder if some programmer was trying something out and forgot s/he had even ever turned off the firewall. Lost their place in the code, so to speak.

All it takes is one phone call at the right moment ... "I'll just make myself a note to turn this back off after I've [RingRing] Hello. Kim's school? Is there some kind of .... What? She put WHAT in her nose? OK, I'll pick her up and take her to the doctor right away. Thank you so much for calling."

Easy.
