    A great online set of tools for anyone connected to the internet

    I find that I use the speed tests more often than anything else, and no... you dont need to have a DSL line to use any of the tools...

    good thread!

    My always growin' setup is Agnitum Outpost Firewall - great for blocking malicious http's

    Spybot SD - the Teatimer works in realtime (as Process Monitor and others)

    --> Proxies mean Privacy and Anonimity <-- JAP or TOR are fine to me !

    Hi all,

    I don't think this has been mentioned yet

    The only negative side of it is when your updating programs, it can be a pain when it constantly tells you of every move - but that's what it's there for.

    Cool - thanks for that!

    I also wanted to ask about vulnerability scanners - specifically host based - are there any "good" ones people have used or are using? I was checking the list at the cotse and at insecure.org, but also just wanted to check here.

    #1. This thread is really old. Replying to a thread THIS old, is not a great idea.

    #2. Asking a question like that, you could easily start your own thread. This one is old as piss, so the fact that most of the people who were in it aren't even here anymore, isn't going to get an answer any quicker. That's why you just start a new thread asking it.

    #3. Zone alarm sucks.
