I have recently upgraded to ZoneAlarm ISS 8.0.298.035 and I am shocked to see that the user no longer has the freedom to runa few Security related binaries like nc.exe (NetCat) etc.Till the release before ZoneAlarm ISS 8.0.298.035 the user had the freedom, the choice to decide to Kill/ DOn't Killa few applications which might be malicious.
I really appreciated Zonealarm for being different and unlike other AVs like SYmantec, KAV
ZA really understood that certailHackTools and othr binaries might be required to be executed by
security and penetraion testers.
I know that
I can change it from Program Controls/ Programs TAB but the facility to decide thn and there make a lot of difference.
I urge ZoneLabs to kindly revert back this Option to the old one and give the user a choice to decide whether he/she wants to allowthe system to xecute certain binaries like netcat, rpcdcom, othr pentesting exes etc.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
