Was wondering about zone and tiny. How safe are you with them. I figure they keep things as far as trojans from getting out, also the script kiddies from getting in. As far as actual good hackers though. How safe am I? Are they super easy to bypass for basically anyone that knows what he/she is doing.

Also, are there ways to hide connections from netstat in dos. Basically, if I think someone is in my system, but has bypassed zone alarm. When I do a netstat, will that show that they are connected, or can they hide that as well??

Thanks in advance.
