    1. Kaspersky Labs Announces the Public Testing of Its Personal Firewall - Kaspersky Anti-Hacker

    Kaspersky Labs announces the release of the beta version for its new
    product Kaspersky Anti-Hacker and invites all those interested to take
    part in its public beta testing.

    Kaspersky Anti-Hacker is an easy-to-use system of defense against
    hacker attacks, ensuring maximum protection of personal computers
    running Windows operating systems. Thanks to its control of all network
    operations on a computer (it tracks all application activity, oversees
    all Internet access and filters incoming and outgoing data packets and
    more), Kaspersky Anti-Hacker guarantees the confidentiality of all
    stored data.

    The improved beta version has additional functions, including an
    additional level of security, a "self-learning" mode that has been added
    to the program's settings. In addition the program now can filter data
    on the application level (high level filtration), which allows the
    selection of specific applications for filtration. For each application
    it is possible to assign any amount of rules and when network operations
    are detected it is possible to deflect them. Users will be warned and
    can block any undesired actions.

    Rules are defined in two ways - by type (email, message transfer
    systems, browsers, conferencing software, etc.) and by the assignment of
    permitted remote services and addresses for each application. This
    allows, from one side, to ensure that applications are not interrupted
    and from the other it secures information stored on the computer from
    unauthorized outside access.

    To familiarize yourself with the terms and procedures of taking part
    please visit the Kaspersky Labs web site at:
    http://www.kaspersky.com/beta.html

    The more active beta-testing participants will be awarded valuable prizes.

    Well I tried it !
    PC Flank found some open ports and ports that weren't stealthed !
    I can't blame Kaspersky totally. It is a little tricky to configure and possibly I had it configured wrong. And it is a Beta.
    But hey, they do make an awesome AV.

    Just installed it and so far am not happy with the company
    offering a download for beta testing and clamping it to a 30 day trial.
    NO beta software should be trial o_O

    I will however continue looking it over.

    I like this one

    40 ports is the default number

    Interesting feature to say the least ;)
    In this screen shot the drop down bar is important. Here you select the various intrusion detection methods you allow and some tweaking
