Developer's Description

Block malicious IPs, keeps ban list auto-updated.

Based on PeerGuardian for the PC, PeerGuardian for OS X is an installer that installs ipfwFast (A modified version of OS X's built in ipfw that loads ips very fast into ipfw) and adds a root cron script to keep your list of ips updated every 12 hours.

PeerGuardian for OS X uses a converted version of the Anti-P2P list from http://methlabs.org/sync/, and protects users from the unwanted entry of organizations of malicious intent such as BayTSP, the MPAA, and the RIAA. This is recommended for ALL users of any P2P programs (Including BitTorrent, Acquisition, Limewire, etc.)
