    New Prompt I've never seen before...
    I was just modifying my calendar in iCal when a prompt popped up saying:

    Do you want the application "netsession_mac" to accept incoming network connections?

    Now I'm very familiar with the "incoming network connections" prompt, but I've never encountered this one for "netsession_mac". Did a search online and it seems like there may be a connection to automatic downloading of Adobe software via an application Akamai and maybe some other things as well. Thing is, I've not downloaded anything new lately, and in all my years of Mac computing I've never encountered this prompt. I'm not worried about it as it seems benign, but does anyone have a definitive answer as to what exactly this is? And why would it have only shown up now?
