RE: How to check your Internet security

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
At your suggestion, I downloaded and installed Zone Alert. I was using
BlackIce Defender. BlackIce drove me nuts every time it would start to flash
and alert me of intrusions. Since setting up ZoneAlert - it does everything
automatically and explains in language I can understand. Not only that, but
I can, at any time, close off all or partial access to the network.
I am no longer using BlackIce as Zone Alert meets my needs in a much more
user-friendly manner. IF IT IS DOING IT'S JOB (there are fewer alerts than
with BlackIce) this is a much better program in my opinion.

Just a slight correction:

ZoneAlarm is NOT shareware, but FREEware. IOW, you don't owe anyone any
money if you use it.

Also, it not only ALERTS you, but actually PREVENTS unauthorized access.

Then you can download a shareware program called 'Zone Alarm' which will
alert you to attempted unauthorized access.
