    Default Firewall comparative tests

    I came across this thread while reading about the sad demise of BlueSecurity in general and BlueFrog in particular, http://castlecops.com/t155984-Study_Your_Firewall.html
    and wonder if the implied weakness/es will be remedied.
    Does anyone know?







    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Most of the "tests" used require that you first knowingly allow an executable to be installed to run the test. The point being that if you never allow such an installation in the first place, you'll always 'pass' the test.

    Also with your Zone Alarm Pro, you can move your Program Control to 'High' and increase your security. Personally, I find the additional alerts to be a pain, so I leave mine on 'Medium' but with Advanced Program Control enabled.

    As always, an alert users is the first and best defense against nefarious applications.
