    Those are old outdated tests that I'm pretty sure were already discussed on the forums a while back.

    No, I'm not aware of any, sorry. But I'm pretty sure most of the apps that failed in those tests were updated and now pass them e.g. EQSecure.

    These kinds of tests seem to be somewhat rare, but when you do see them they seem to ofetn be funded by one vendor or the other and you know what the results will most often be then. ;)

    I would love to find some good new fair tests with the latest hips, antispyware, antikeyloggers ect. but I haven't been able to find any I feel are not slanted in one direction or the other.

    I noticed Matousec tests are usually discussed in the "other firewalls" section of this forum. They have little to do with privacy software...

    What do you think a Firewall is?

    Privacy Software!

    These tests were designed to test your HIPS!

    One of the roles of a firewall can be protecting your privacy, so in a way you can say firewall is a form of "privacy software". However, it is not it's only role or it's main role.

    They're interesting tests, but I see them as somewhat overrated.
