~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Computer Firewalls

Firewalls provide an essential layer of protection by blocking the port probes and scans that some bad guys and worms use to decide which PCs are vulnerable to attack. But firewalls aren't foolproof.

Even one from a reputable company can be leaky if it's misconfigured, and a holey firewall combined with an unpatched copy of Windows could permit malicious hackers to break into your system. But a good firewall does its job in the background. If you don't have a firewall check the following URL for a list of free ones and for tips on installing them: http://find.pcworld.com/37553

If you have a firewall you can test it with a visit Sygate Online Services Security Scan: http://find.pcworld.com/37550

If you would like to test the privacy of your computer visit Audit My PC: http://find.pcworld.com/37556
