    off to "never ever" land
    :SHOCK:
    windows internal firewall sux
    just disable it by going to
    control panel => security centre
    and use zonealarm instead
    if u insist on not using any firewall and wanna get rid of the security centre msg that pops up everytime .. then again goto security centre
    in the left pane click on "change the way security centre alerts me"
    and deselect firewall
    have fun

    Well, if you do want to make a comment 'bout a s/w like Zonealarm, I think you should mention a little more.

    You resistance to provide more information made me feel vulnerable :cry: cause there are people who use zone alarm with a lot of trust.I'm one of them.
    Just a quick google search led to me 2 security sites that have some kind of info that may be resembling to whatever you are talking about.

    Guys,

    the known 3 so called vulnerabilities are here :

    1) Thermite via Process Injection

    Desc: Thermite, unlike other leaktest that injects it's code into another processes via DLL, injects it's code into the target process directly, by creating an additional malicious thread within that process! totally invisible to some actual personal firewalls.

    more info here :

    Code:
    http://www.firewallleaktester.com/leaktest8.htm
    2) Copycat via Process Injection

    Desc: Like Thermite, copycat uses direct code injection (without creating an additional thread) into a web browser to prevent it from being caught by firewall.

    Note: Almost all AV catches Copycat. Well Norton did so I am assuming everything else will too :D

    more info here :

    Code:
    http://www.firewallleaktester.com/leaktest9.htm
    3) Wallbreaker

    Details are here below:

    Code:
    http://www.firewallleaktester.com/leaktest11.htm
    And the complete list of tests is here:

    Code:
    http://www.firewallleaktester.com/tests.htm
    I posted this a while ago but I guess no ones bothered.

    And seriously most of the firewalls fail when it comes to the mentioned above 3 tests. And the no of actual virus or trojans which will go into such complicated process manipulation...well I leave it upto u guys to think it out...
