MagiCal's use of curl

  • Type: Other
  • Status: Closed

Description

When MagiCal is launched, a curl process is started. Is this part of MagiCal? If so, what is it doing exactly?

Thanks,
David

Hi David, this is explained on the FAQ page:

Nothing sinister, just a version check ;-) You can disable it in the preferences.

In an earlier version of MagiCal, did MagiCal's curl process happen to reach out to host.drht3.net?

MagiCal didn't use curl in previous versions, but it did have a version check, and host.drht3.net is the nameserver for Charcoal Design, so it is quite likely that it would have showed up in your logs.
