Which isn't very surprising, since the Windows-Firewall doesn't do
outbound filtering, and doesn't claim to do it. The tests are targeted
at firewalls that *claim* to be capable of outbound filtering.

Leythos' statement above is equivalent to "A-ha! Windows notepad fails
at detecting viruses!!1eleventeen". Duh.

Well, yes. The way I understand is that Windows firewall never
claimed to filter outbound applications.

Correct.
