    Default ZA"..facilitate Microsoft's NSA-controlled remote admin access..without security flag"

    I've been using ZA for many years...since i've PC...

    Today i found this at http://cryptome.org :

    Subject: NSA-affiliated IPs/DNS as of 19 Dec 2007 05:57hrsGMT
    Date: Tue, 18 Dec 2007 23:40:38 -0700 (MST)

    Just learned following within the past few days:

    Certain privacy/full session SSL email hosting services have been purchased/changed operational control by NSA and affiliates within the past few months, through private intermediary entities.

    Hushmail: now fully owned by private entity NSA affiliate; has had informal relationship with NSA for a number of years that effectively provided NSA with real time access to Hushmail's hosting servers.

    Safe-mail.net: Israeli-based, ironically privately lauded by NSA and US military several years ago for its sound implementation of SendMail with SSL webmail GUI frontend. Now provides mail server info to NSA in real time.

    Guardster.com (SSH/SSL proxy): NSA contractors have "bought" full access rights to Guardster servers a few days ago. Separate but related: faciliated port sniffing of hosting servers at Everyones Internet, on NSA affiliates' behalf, has been ongoing for a number of months now.

    More info on industry Windows security software:

    Zone Alarm, Symantec, MacAfee: All facilitate Microsoft's NSA-controlled remote admin access via IP/TCP ports 1024 through 1030; ie will allow access without security flag. Unknown whether or not software port forward routing by these same programs will defeat NSA access.

    I will continue to provide more info on the above and related topics upon discovery.

    Hi!
    yes, this has already been posted twice here....

    See for example here: http://forums.zonelabs.com/zonelabs/...ssage.id=17500

    What to say? This story comes back from time to time. The same is said about MS OS (XP and VISTA).
    If you don't trust a software moreover if of security nature remove it instantly and use one you feel safe with.

    Also note that this forum is not monitored by ZA staff we are all ZA users.

    Please check before posting already old news.

    Thank you in advance for your understanding.

    Cheers,
