To anyone concerned about internet security andfirewalls,only one
blocks intrusions and outgoing leaks.And that is
ZoneAlarm.Norton Internet Security nor one by McAffe
catches and stops what Zonealarm does.In fact i have been
online for about ten minutes now and have had 6 IMCP pings
and 3 port probe attempts.When set up correctly,zonealarm makes your computer
virtualy invisible to pings and port probes,instead of writting about
it here in detail, visit http://www.zonelabs.com
its free for personal use.
Also vo to htp://www.grc.com and check your own computer for security
and find free software that will check for and delete spyware,look for
"leaktest" "Optout" and "Shields Up" for testing.
