    OK, some people need a little extra help.

    If you want to test DLL injection, try some of the leak testers found on the Firewall Leak Tester site. In particular, check out FireHole, pcAudit, pcAudit 2, AWFT, Thermite, and Copycat.

    You can also easily search for, and download, real trojans. I won't post any such links here, and of course I can't responsibly advise actually doing this. If you really want to, at least back up everything beforehand (i.e. create an image), disconnect from the internet first, and then restore everything afterward. Don't mess with real troans, though--it's really quite stupid.

    But sometimes the truest test of your security. Although I do recommend as well not to use real trojans if you are not comfortable doing so as nameless said.

    Thanks,

    I figured that since Painkiller needed to ask what to do, (s)he wouldn't be up for testing with live trojans. (No offense; I don't mess with them either, except maybe with Virtual PC.)

    The best test would be Leave it alone before you break it. or If its not broke dont fix it. Good Luck........ Whoever said that was really smart.

    I think he is trying to see if it actually works. After he figures out it works then your quote would be correct :) Please don't take this as rude it is not intended that way. Just saying he is trying to figure out how good his security is working.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    There really should be more of these different security tests and safe ways to test your security. You shouldn't have to download real trojans or other malware to do the tests. But if you do you may get more than you bargained for. Remember some trojans can erase your entire hard drive, or install other malware like rootkits. Make sure you really really know what your doing before you get involved in any of this type of testing. The best advice would be as Beefcarver said....if it aint broke, don't fix it.

    How does "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" apply here? The whole point is to see if it is "broke".

    there are 'virtual PC' programs out there, where you can set up a PC within a PC to test such security programs

    And one of the most-affordable ones is--not surprisingly--called Virtual PC. But using one is testing the virtual PC environment, not your real, working environment.

    Make sure you have a good image copy of your disk.
