This outage at ZoneAlarm is causing my ZoneAlarm Pro to revert to ZoneAlarm Free, because it cannot communicate with the ZoneAlarm license server. Thus, the software think it is not licensed and just provides the basics.
That means all someone needs to do is cause a denial of service to the ZoneAlarm license servers and everyone that runs ZoneAlarm Pro is at greater risk than before. In this case the denial of service was self-inflicted, but it still affects us all. I find this to be totally unacceptable.
ZoneAlarm must find a better way to fail-safe.
