    Default Shocked at how poorly ZoneAlarm performed in the Vulnerability testing by Secunia - See their report

    Has Anyone from the ZoneAlarm team read how poorly it performed in the Vulnerability testing by Secunia - See Secunia's report via the link below.

    I was very disappointed at the results to say the least. More importantly, I am concerned at how safe my online transactions really are and the level of protection that the product is providing.

    Hi!
    you should also report about the assessment of the security industry about this test...
    To sum up... a largely flowed approch and a good marketing of their vulnerability service:

    And a discussion by some security expert here:

    Hi Fax, that's a fair point that you make and after reading information posted on some of the links, it would appear that there may have been a bit of chest beating by Secunia. None the less, it seems that some of the other products were still able to capture significantly more than others. This is what concerned me / caught my attention originally. Thanks for the information.

    Indeed this is the point, they are not necessarily better than the others
