Re: Zone Alarm (Freeware-) stopped reporting intrustions..



One suspects that ZA cant be correctly working/configured if it does not
report having blocked intrusions?

It does indicate that it is (alledgely-) working - but at the same time
is apparently not finding a single intrusion?

Grateful for any tips...?

Deinstall ZA, it's useless.
See http://www.ntsvcfg.de/linkblock_eng.html

And if you think it can block malicious outbound traffic see Microsofts
statement at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/technetmag/issues/2006/05/SecurityMyths/default.aspx
the chapter "Myth: Host-Based Firewalls Must Filter Outbound Traffic to
be Safe. "
