http://ubuntuforums.org – **note to Moderaters - this is not a dupe of my General Discussion thread - this is specifically about blocking the actions of this process, not what it does :P I noticed this in my process recently list: /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd-http --spawner :1.6 /org/gtk/gvfs/exec_spaw/2 It seems to make various outbound network requests. So far my searching has failed to educate me as to what it is up to so I want to block its connectivity. Using either Apparmor or iptables is there a way to deny this process network access? Thanks in advance :D (Hardware)
