    Hi, folks: One of the major reasons these apps are enlisted for their services is to protect our machines from being attacked acrossboard. If malwares ever cause irreversible damages to the BOX, user can cut loose it by rebooting or deleting. In theory, this may sound right, but in reality, there are chances that these malwares may sneak thru perimeter into neighboring partitions. I have not seen any tests performed towards perimeter permeability. Until these tests are done, I have a strong reservation about their ability to protect us.o_O

    Hello,
    You can test for yourself.
    Did you try any Linux tools? Like Truman?
