If anyone is interested, System Shutdown Simulator (SSS) Version 1.1 has been released. Can be obtained from here: http://zeroday-software.freetzi.com/ ___________________________________________ New Features: This update no longer uses an outbound ping test for the firewall test component. Now System Shutdown Simulator downloads an actual file from the internet (a webpage in this case) and tries to open it. In reality malware could download and run files from the internet this way. Change Log: * New Firewall Test Method Used. * Clear Button For Payload Results * Minor GUI Changes ___________________________________________ Release Notes: * Firewall Leaktest Component Downloads and Opens Webpage. It is possible that your HIPS software will prevent webpage from opening. This is still a fail as the file was downloaded successfully. * Ensure Browser Cache cleared in between subsequent running of the firewall test component. This will ensure a new file is downloaded each time the test is run. * Please report any bugs as there are significant changes in this version. We recommend everyone to re-run the firewall test component as misleading results may have been obtained from previous versions of SSS.
