We’ve been receiving a number of questions regarding Little Snitch being mentioned in the CIA Vault 7 documents that were made public on WikiLeaks.
The published documents don’t provide any indications that surveillance agencies were able to circumvent the protection mechanisms of Little Snitch.
It’s just recognizable that an understandable interest in such circumvention possibilities exists.
We will therefore continue our efforts to shield our product against such desires by applying a range of different protection strategies.
In this regard we’d like to emphasize the importance to always install the latest security relevant software updates in a timely manner.
If you haven’t already, we recommend turning on automatic software update checks in Little Snitch Configuration > Preferences to make sure you won’t miss any important security updates.
