As a general rule, I block internet access to all programs by default using an external firewall and whitelist only those programs that I intend to give access. The alert feature of an external firewall also helps to know whenever a program is trying to access internet. Also I don't allow auto-updating software's, I wait for a month or so and find updates to all software's on my system (if any) using SUMo.
