    This article is about using Rconnect and C shellcoding (via WiShMaster) in order to use a backdoor engine on Windows Xp like PCs.
    After a very detailled explanation, the author (Benjamin Caillat) show us the result of what shellcoding can do (really very interesting ...)

    Now, almost all known Firewalls out today 'Failed' the test...

    Interesting.
    I would love to see Jetico v2 testet against this RConnect backdoor. I don't have this Virus in my collection.

    I wonder why they didn't test Outpost Pro (instead of testing sygate).

    Well it appears only Comodo Personal Firewall passed the leaktest, it truly does pass all leaktests out of the box. ;)

    Also I would like to point out that the Comodo Personal Firewall version that they used in the leaktest is not even the latest version.

    So, why do you think that is?

    (hint: I come in peace and just want you to think as me;) .)

    Have a theory but it is probably better to say nothing.

    Heh, I'm not sure that is possible ;)
