The problem is that Checkpoint appears to be concerned with only users that pay the most. Those of us with no money are stuck. Checkpoint comes across as holding our Internet access hostage for more money. "Upgrade and we will fix the problem."
I'm not sure that statement is 100% true. I read that CheckPoint wasn't in the loop for the latest DNS patch from M$.(KB951748) Yes, CheckPoint has made the patch(KB951748 for their most expensive product first. However, I believe it's coincidental and the patch for all CheckPoint products will be posted sooner than later.
