I like the changes in version 2.0, but as I mentioned previously, use this just for casual anonymous surfing. I was wondering why my IP address was being leaked through ftp, even though Anonym changes that setting as well, and I found this:

"Google's Chrome and Apple's Safari leak the user's IP address as a FTP test, recently implemented into our anonymity test suite, shows. Browsers based on WebKit seem to disregard their FTP proxy settings and fetch respective content directly. This is entirely independent of the particular anonymization service used. For instance, Tor users having Chrome or Safari as their browser are affected as well. Therefore, we strongly recommend to use a browser not based on WebKit, e.g. Firefox (with our privacy enhancing profile JonDoFox), in order to use the Internet anonymously."

Again, I strongly suggest you try this:

http://what-is-my-ip-address.anonymous-proxy-servers.net/

And clicking: START TEST: PLEASE CLICK HERE TO START THE ANONYMITY TEST

It is only after starting the test that you will see if your IP address is being revealed. Mine is, with Safari, every time! This is NOT the fault of Anonym. You MUST block Java as well!

I should add:

If you insist on using Safari or Chrome with Anonym, also use Little Snitch to block Safari's "end run" on ftp:

http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/10426/little-snitch

Try it, and whenever you run the anonymity test in my previous post, use Little Snitch to block Safari's attempt to access the test via FTP. This should work on any Web-site that does the same.

Also, use ClicktoPlugin extension in Safari to block Java and Flash:

http://hoyois.github.com/safariextensions/clicktoplugin/

None of this will help, of course, if you plan to take over the world and the authorities subpoena the log files of the proxy server you are using!

The only tool that I have found that can completely delete current log files. And no, I don't want to wait for my system to rotate log files.

I would like to donate for this program, but there seems to be no way to do this.

There a couple of minor errors in the running of the program (specifically the "restart" or "shutdown" buttons after a major cleaning don't work), but other than that, a terrific little utility. Thanks!

A whois on the domain-name reveals this:

Whoisguard protected.

When a domain is WhoisGuard protected, it means that the domain owner opted for a private registration. WhoisGuard is a third-party service that replaces domain owner's personal information with their third-party information in Whois records. Domain owners may opt to use WhoisGuard so that they can remain anonymous.

When a domain is WhoisGuard protected, you have no way to contact the domain owner directly. You may contact WhoisGuard at the email provided in the Whois record for information pertaining to further contacting the domain owner.

(taken from https://support.domaintools.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=85)

Thus, folks, you will never know who owns or controls this software. Buyer beware.

Not to disparage our Russian brothers, but I would not trust software from coming from anything East of Europe or South of Gibraltar. Especially software that is essentially Malware.

"KeyBag Pro is perfectly fit for business sphere."

Yeah, more like the monkey-business sphere. As if I would trust a keystroke logger to access my system.

Anyone here game to give it a try by giving it administrator privileges?

I installed Sophos just for fun. I enjoy trying new programs, and though there are no viruses for the Mac in the wild, common sense dictates that in order to not pass viruses to one's friends in the window's world via e-mail, one should probably scan files now and then.

Sophos was easy to set up and has a nice, clean user interface. It is easy to use and very Mac-like. I give it five stars for its GUI.

However, upon running a "Scan Local Drives" scan, my Mac Pro locked-up on me. I don't mean a soft, command-option-escape lock, but the dreaded "spinning beach ball" total machine lock-up. After doing a hard restart of the computer, I ran it twice more with the same result. All disk permissions were updated before running the software. I then dumped several drives that I have hooked up to the computer (including bootcamp), and Sophos ran well (without finding any viruses).

An examination of the log files in Console revealed some particular corrupt files in Bootcamp on the windows partition. I'm not sure if these files are corrupt or not, and I'm not sure if the "corrupt" files caused the hanging problem, and I don't have the patience to troubleshoot Sophos for the company. However, a more graceful escape from this particular problem would have been appreciated. I don't like to restart my Mac because some program isn't playing "nicely."

So, five stars for interface. Negative five stars for incessant crashing, and negative four stars for zero feedback for the crash. Total: Minus four stars.

Conclusion: Sophos may be well respected in the Window's world, but until they get their act together on the Mac, I would say: stay away.

I'm aware of how to use Console to view log files, otherwise I wouldn't have commented that Yasu didn't remove my logs. Itweax, also located on MacUpdate, does remove the files completely. I was looking for a single-window solution like this program promotes.

Correction: System log files are removed, just nothing else. Application Log files are still there.

I noticed in the picture above that there are "winners" and "loosers." What's a "looser?" Is that the opposite of a "tighter?"
