profit42 writes "Adobe made the beta version of Photoshop CS3 available on labs.adobe.com. Almost the whole community of photographers downloaded the new version and adopted the new features immediately. One of those new "features" is, according to profit42's article a shocking one: the installer installs, without letting the user know, the Bonjour Service: mDNSResponder. This service is associated with Apple and itunes and sets up a P2P connection without your permission. Removal is possible using Spysweeper or by following the steps described on profit42.com."
