    So if an _update_ from _ZoneLabs_ crashes ZoneAlarm. What chances does it have against properly coded malware?! :eek:

    I quote the Official Response from Zone Labs:

    === begin quote ===

    Zone Labs users began reporting True Vector-related crashes across its ZoneAlarm firewall and security suite product line late this afternoon, June 9th at approx. 5:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)

    Zone Labs quickly replicated the issue in the company's security lab, identified the cause and resolved it within 5 hours.

    The problem was related to an update to our Program Advisory service issued at 4:00 p.m. PDT. As soon as the issue was confirmed, Zone Labs rolled back the Program Advisory update and cleared its Internet-based update delivery system, which restored full functionality to users immediately.

    Customers should be assured that Zone Labs is committed to providing a seamless, advanced Internet security solution and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

    === end quotes ===
