Since ZoneAlarm is restricted in blocking "Advertisement" pop-ups and other such annoyances, how can I depend on ZoneAlarm.
At some point I had to reload ZoneAlarm back onto my computer and nothing happened.
The first time I used it (moons ago) it immediately blocked things I never new were there.
Now, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
From 'higher ups' I know that many companies/organizations (web-based) took action against spyware (advertisement pop-ups) type applications, and won.
It is apparent to me that those responsible for implementing and/or enforcing cyber laws are more interested in maintaining there personal closet-habits than the privacy act.
Ability and/or inability to block pop-ups links to other areas of information/data security: a great concern.
How does one know that their advertisement is being block?!!
MUST be given more control as to who
they let into their 'home'.
However, it is clearly understood that
could be given a voice in e-commerce, but someone who
breaks into my home, steals everything valueable,
is a criminal (besides hurting themselves and expecting the victom to pay).
Visiting a store (web-site, network) does not give them the right to personal information: it's ludicrous!
Therefore, why should a website be given the authorship to collect information from my system, just because I visited their website? This is unethical!
But of course we all know that ethics is far from key interests!
