    Default How to kill akamai?

    How I saw those people (akamai)
    who registered theirs business are somewhere on small islands near UK, I ask my self what they have with me how they have som much access to my PC? So I was a little investigated on net, and I get answer, via my Zone Labs software? So first what I done was to block akamai on my PC. Not just that they have access all over my PC, so one time I have alert with Internet Explorer, second time it is with Advance Programe Access, so those MF using my resources and god know what else?
    So how could I kill them 100% in my PC?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    A shotgun works ok AFAIK.
    Actually Akamai Technologies is a cached server network for many companies such as Microsoft, Adobe, Google, Symantec, McAfee besides just ZoneLabs.

    The ZA will use the akamai for updates and upgrades and will check often with either the zonelabs server or the akamai server.

    They have no real access to or control of your PC.

    Hi!
    not sure I can follow what you are trying to achieve.

    Akamai is a reputable company providing distributed computing platform for global Internet content and application delivery.

    This company is used by all major IT companies in the world.
    For example: Microsoft, DELL, Checkpoint, HP, etc... the list is very long.

    For more information about Akamai see here:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akamai_Technologies

    May be we are talking about a different Akamai company???

    Cheers,

    No, you don't understand me.
    I didn't asked for your opinion about Akamai becouase I don't care about them and what they are, most likely that they collect some kind of the information via Zone ISS, so I don't want them near my machine not just in my machine, not just becouase they didn't payed to me to collect any data, but becouase they use my net resources without my promiton and perhaps sell those to there's clients, how you are able to see down.



    <blockquote><hr>Akamai, who are there and what they are doing?
    Akamai.com


    We combine this global scope with constant data collection to construct an accurate and comprehensive picture of what's happening on the Internet. Bookmark this page to check the world's online behavior at any given moment -- How fast is data moving? Where's the most congestion? What events are causing spikes in Web activity?

    Previously, only Akamai and our customers had access to this information. Now we're opening that window into the online universe.

    Akamai monitors the volume of visitors to hundreds of worldwide online news, retail, digital music, and advertising sites and compiles data on the most-read stories, purchasing behavior, and global concentration of online consumers. Check here to see what's generating the most buzz today;

    http://www.akamai.com/html/technolog...ng_akamai.html<hr></blockquote>I was blocked them and you cannot change my opinion about that, and I don't know for rest who buys Zone Labs products, but I don't like idea at all
    that someone (Zone Labs) install software without my knowladge and made connection with some company like Akamai and also without my knowladge they are all over my PC in IE or any other programm with lot of the IP range and etc.
    If you guys cannot buy your own servers for update, than it is you mistake, next time I will by G-DATA which have theirs own update servers, so you will be able to continue to talk with people why Akamai is all over theirs PC's, I will not care.

    So don't sell me that story that
    Akamai don't collect data about Zone Labs clients and many others and theirs habitutes on internet or anybody else
    and sell to third parties. I know how this world function, so please tell me how can I
    destroy
    Akamai from my PC, becouase they are unauthorised in my PC.
    One more time, I want to destroy Akamai inside my PC which came together with ZL IS, so I think that you guys know how to destroy them?
    Thank you in advance

    Akamai monitors global Internet conditions around the clock. With this real-time data we identify the global regions with the greatest attack traffic, cities with the slowest Web connections (latency), and geographic areas with the most Web traffic (traffic density).


    Attack Traffic:
    Akamai measures attack traffic in real time across the Internet with our diverse network deployments. We collect data on the number of connections that are attempted, the source IP address, the destination IP address and the source and destination ports in real time. The packets captured are generally from automated scanning trojans and worms looking to infect new computers scanning randomly generated IP addresses. The attack traffic depicts the total number of attacks over the last twenty-four hours.

    Values are measured in attacks per 24 hours (attacks/24hrs). Regions are displayed as countries or states.

    Latency/Speed:
    Akamai measures network latency between most major cities via regularly automated tests. These tests consist of web connections and downloads as well as ICMP pings. Displayed in this interface are the current top ten worst performing cities. Absolute Latency depicts the current latency of a given city, while Relative Latency depicts the differential between the city's current latency and its historical average latency.

    Values are measured in milliseconds (ms).

    Network Traffic:
    Akamai monitors the amount of data being requested and delivered - by geography at any given moment in time. Displayed in this interface are the top ten regions with the current highest traffic volumes.

    Values are measured as percentage of global network traffic. Regions are displayed as countries or states.
