    Hi!

    I´m a member of user´s group interested in buy a Internet Security Suite for all of us. Some of us are testing KIS7 features to decide between this one or ESS when it became finally released (major preference in group), but I´ve audict my Windows Vista 32bit with ESS beta 2 installed in PC Flanck tests. Is there any way to full stealth ESS at this moment?

    This is the test result:
    http://www.pcflank.com/scanner_stea...d8969cfe094c0f45effc1de005a0&test_page=report

    "The results of Stealth Test


    We have sent following packets to TCP:1 port of your machine:

    TCP ping packet
    TCP NULL packet
    TCP FIN packet
    TCP XMAS packet
    UDP packet
    Here is the description of possible results on each sent packet:
    "Stealthed" - Means that your system (firewall) has successfuly passed the test by not responding to the packet we have sent to it.
    "Non-stealthed" - Means that your system (firewall) responded to the packet we have sent to it. What is more important, is that it also means that your computer is visible to others on the Internet that can be potentially dangerous.

    Packet' type Status
    TCP "ping" stealthed
    TCP NULL stealthed
    TCP FIN non-stealthed
    TCP XMAS non-stealthed
    UDP non-stealthed



    Recommendation:

    Install personal firewall software. PC Flank recommends Outpost Firewall Pro.

    If you have already installed and are using a firewall, check if it is set to make all the ports of your computer invisible (stealthed). If it is, then get new firewall software and redo this test.

    Results of Advanced Port Scanner
    TCP CONNECT scanning (scanned in 5 seconds)



    We have scanned your computer' ports used by the most widespread trojan horses. Here is the description of possible ports' statuses:

    "Stealthed" (by a firewall) -Means that your computer is invisible to others on the Internet and protected by a firewall or other similiar software;
    "Closed" (non-stealthed) - means that this port is closed, but your computer is visible to others on the Internet that can be potentially dangerous;
    "Open" - Means that this port is ready to establish (or has already established) a connection with remote address. It also means that your computer is vulnerable to attacks and could have been already hacked or infected by a trojan/backdoor;

    Port: Status Service Description
    21 stealthed FTP File Transfer Protocol is used to transfer files between computers
    23 stealthed TELNET Telnet is used to remotely create a shell (dos prompt)
    80 stealthed HTTP HTTP web services publish web pages
    135 stealthed RPC Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is used in client/server applications based on MS Windows operating systems
    137 stealthed NETBIOS Name Service NetBios is used to share files through your Network Neighborhood
    139 stealthed NETBIOS Session Service NetBios is used to share files through your Network Neighborhood
    1080 stealthed SOCKS PROXY Socks Proxy is an internet proxy service
    3128 stealthed Masters Paradise and RingZero Trojan horses
    27374 stealthed SubSeven SubSeven is one of the most widespread trojans

    12348 closed BioNet BioNet is one of the most widespread trojan
    31337 closed Back Orifice Back Orifice is one of the most widespread trojans

    IMHO, that makes their whole operation flawed.

    Ridiculous! If they were paying them why would the latest Outpost review be of version 2.5 when it's now version 4.

    Use the ShieldsUp site instead.

    Comodo and even Avira firewalls are passing these tests succesfully. The problem is with ESS beta2 not with PcFlank
