    :D I just run a GRC Shields Up Test.. Looks like I'm safe and sound.. Just like The Fort Knox.. :D :cool:
    C'mmon you hackers.. Catch me than if you can.... :D :D :cool:
    I'm not going to say what protection I'm using, but I can tell you one thing...
    Nothing fancy.. :D


    File Sharing Test;

    Attempting connection to your computer. . .
    Shields UP! is now attempting to contact the Hidden Internet Server within your PC

    Your Internet port 139 does not appear to exist!
    One or more ports on this system are operating in FULL STEALTH MODE! Standard Internet behavior requires port connection to be answered with a success or refusal response. Therefore, only an attempt to connect to a nonexistent computer results in no response of either kind. But YOUR computer has DELIBERATELY CHOSEN NOT TO RESPOND (that's very cool!) which represents advanced computer and port stealthing capabilities. A machine configured in this fashion is well hardened to Internet NetBIOS attack and intrusion.

    Unable to connect with NetBIOS to your computer.
    All attempts to get any information from your computer have FAILED. (This is very uncommon for a Windows networking-based PC.) Relative to vulnerabilities from Windows networking, this computer appears to be VERY SECURE since it is NOT exposing ANY of its internal NetBIOS networking protocol over the Internet.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Common Ports Test;

    Your system has achieved a perfect "TruStealth" rating. Not a single packet — solicited or otherwise — was received from your system as a result of our security probing tests. Your system ignored and refused to reply to repeated Pings (ICMP Echo Requests). From the standpoint of the passing probes of any hacker, this machine does not exist on the Internet. Some questionable personal security systems expose their users by attempting to "counter-probe the prober", thus revealing themselves. But your system wisely remained silent in every way. Very nice.

    Good to see another user safe and sound.
    Code:
     Come on man...
     Just send me your Ip.... and I'll show you something.... c'mon... please?
     
    LOL.
    GRC tests are nice, except that that they are really basic and according to www.grcsucks.com , they're NOT reliable at all. I think they're cool though.

    :D I did it once.. :eek: And guy who tried to get into my system, got warning from my ISP LOL.
    He was a mod on one of forums I was joining, and a good friend of mine. So I asked him to look if he could see my desktop.. Promissing young "hacker" got scared sh*tless after that warning, and reassured me he'll never do it again... :D :D
    See? I was young and stupid once too.. :D
    That was exactly the reason for starting the thread Security for dummies..
    Most of people on Internet know nothing about security.. Than you find somebody who seem to know everything, and follow him like lost puppy.. I must admit I found and learned lot of interesting stuff thanks to Steve..
    I even think I found Wilders Security from one of the links on his page.. I'm not sure.. It was long ago..
    Anyway.. Mr. Eckenfels himself thought that Steve did some good things for
    net surfers..
    I enjoyed the reading on grcsucks tho.. :) Thanx..

    NetTraveller,

    If you want more secure (if you're paranoid like me), then use a proxy program like Tor and surf around all of the internet with a fake IP. (I use it as a Socks 5 proxy on MSN, AIM, ICQ, and Y!)

    If you want to go even further (for those uber paranoid people like me :D) then use Proxomitron with Jakx's Spoofing Pack. You'd be surfing with 3 fake IP Addresses!

    ;)

    BTW, I get a perfect score on GRC with my Router disabled, so I feel pretty secure, but as the old saying goes, Where there's a will, there's a way.

    I agree ;) It takes a bit to get used to at first, like 6 months - 1 year, but once you get it, the web is in your palm(s) =D

    i think what he meant was that there was backdoor type malware operational on his PC, but GEC's tests couldn't see the ports these malware had opened to listen for remote commands.
