Re: Anonymizer problems
I've seen certain cases where ZoneAlarm was intentionally disabled and
still blocked ICMP traffic and even FTP connections initiated from the
host itself. We've all seen it sometimes failing to filter SMB traffic,
allowing the Sasser worm to exploit unpatched systems (shame on those!)
even though approciate filter rules were in place. And many more... this
piece of software is totally buggy, much like any other PFW.
As told above, sometimes even disabling it won't solve the problems.
Uninstallation usually does, well except for Symantec's product where
even the uninstall routine sometimes fails blatantly on removing the
drivers (which essentially breaks every network functionality until
manual removal and cleanup).
