Two new rules added to Matousec's Firewall Challenge tests:
- 2008-04-01: We have added two new rules to Firewall Challenge to improve its quality and we have also created a FAQ page. The first change in rules is that we will publish results of stable and publicly available versions only – i.e. no public results of beta or internal versions any more. The second change is that we will not publish the results of the paid Firewall Challenge testing if we published some results for the given product in the last month. The vendors are thus no longer able to quickly fix their products in response to our testing, ask us then for retesting and almost silently replace the old results in one or two days. This rule should prevent the unwanted behaviour of vendors that tend to focus on fighting the tests because of marketing and forget about other problems in their products.
