    I can't believe these (All) rules are default in Online Armor:

    http://lindlounge.com/oa.JPG

    I mean, allowing every program on the machine to use ports 80, 443, 53, 7022, 7024 as they see fito_O

    What's going on? o_O

    When i tried version 3.0.190, no such rules were there by default! And i would certainly delete them immediately!

    You should find somewhere in settings and deselect the "allow automatically trusted applications to access internet" and also check "notify when a program is autotrusted" (or something similar).

    Not there by default. I am running OA 3 on 2 Vista and 1 XP machine and don't have any all rules at all. Maybe rerun the safety check wizard?

    Hard to say. I installed OA many times and never saw anything like this.

    Do you mean these rules appeared right after install (are you sure you didn't import old rules during SCW) ? What version did you install ?

    Ok, pretty weird. I'll delete them and do some checks.

    Alex_s yeah they were there right away. Might have been old rules from long ago where I might have tried OA, but I certainly have never added those rules even back then. I installed the 3.0.0.190.Free.

    It passed the safety check. I think I'll reinstall and clean out any old installation.

    FWIW, the only "ALL" rules in OA xp sp3 I saw were ones I built myself to block incoming packets on certain ports heavily used by trojans. May have been over kill at the time but I don't believe in overkill on incoming.
