    Exclamation Firewall Tester

    I know many here will know of this site, but I thought I would post it for the benfit of new members, or those who wish to check the overall security level of their firewall.

    Of course, just because you puter might pass this test, it in no way means your 100% safe and secure, if however your puter fails..... :

    For MS users

    Here is a site for all of you NT, 2000 Pro, and XP users. It scans you then lists othe problems besides open ports. It checks your shares, password security, and security zones. As well as other tests such as hot fixes and patches. It's a very nice site to test MS corperate products at. It will even give you step by step on how to fix the problems.
    The link:

    Another actual freebie from MS. I am shocked.

    Funny ehh. Hard to beleive they have such a good service offered for free. When all it accomplishes, is to make swiss cheese of the product they are selling LOL

    Hello !

    I found a nice site today explaining some of the risks when dealing with Personal Firewalls, what they are capable to do and what features they often are missing. This article are mostly aiming towards newbies to computer security and "normal" home users. There are also a "leak test" tool available for download and other security related tools aswell.

    Hope someone finds this post helpful.

    FireHole - How to bypass your personal firewall outbound detection
    Source: Robin Keir, http://keir.net

    With the advent of personal firewall products such as ZoneAlarm, Tiny Personal Firewall, Sygate Personal Firewall and many others we saw a diversion from the typical concept of a firewall only blocking inbound network traffic by having the product monitoring and blocking outbound traffic. This was a good thing because it alerted the user to potentially malicious or privacy compromising programs running on their systems trying to talk out to the Internet for whatever nefarious deeds they were designed to perform. The rest of the article can be found here. And the FireHole Tool can be downloaded here..

    All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.)
    Don't I feel special, heh. Thanks for the site.
