    Default ZoneAlarm Check Up

    Hello to All,
    I have ZoneAlarm Security Suite installed on a computer running XP OS. Has anyone taken this Checkup? This test has given results:

    Security Flaw Failures:
    A total of 21 known security flaw(s) have been identified on your system that could allow an attacker access to your personal information or cause irreversible damage

    Security Settings:
    Potentially dangerous system security settings have been detected. These settings must be modified or disabled to prevent possible damage to the system.
    ZoneAlarm Security Suite is in auto configuration mode. Can anyone explain these failures?
    How does there product fail their test.
    Thanks

    Hi!
    usually this tests are done to sell a specific security tool, just marketing.... Sometimes they are also rouge security checking with fake messages.

    Do not trust third party software trying to push you to buy something else. By running something external you already defeated the protection. If it is a new malware than its too late already.

    You should:

    1. Update your OS up to the last SP and patch!
    2. Ensure you have the latest ZASS (8.0.400.020)
    3. That is updated (ideally set to update every hour)
    4. Check you are not running vulnerable software

    Try to keep you ZASS at default. If it is on AUTO then you have not used more than 21 days.
