Security - General / Packet Capturing

I was going to move this to security, but can't find the move button on this thread.  

So... Try this:  A USB sniffer for Windows.

Security - General / ZoneAlarm and Proxo

Your definition for what Proxomitron is is not correct.  A server is an application that sits and listen on a certain port number for client requests.  Arne's site here is served up by a web server, and your browser is the client.

The same applies to Proxomitron... it sits on a system and waits for a browser to call it into service.  

In addition, the other server qualities Proxomitron has is to serve other systems on the network.

Please go check your defitions.  Proxomitron is a server.

However Zone Alarm defines it is up to them, but this is how Proxomitron works.  If it was not a server, you wouldn't be able to sent requests to it.

The reason why that gets past zone alarm is due to a configuration issue.  If you allow IE to access the web, then the program gets past zone alarm b/c it uses IE for web access.  So, you have to set it to prompt instead.  When IE wants web access, it will prompt you. This is how mine is set, and ZAP catches these tests.

Security - General / New Website: Computer Cops

I've been working on it for a couple weeks now, and feel it is ready to go live.  There are a couple GUI enhancements which are "in the bin" that will be taking place over the next month or two.  Most important is a new logo to replace the current site logo.

But, the site I feel is ready to go.  Otherwise, I would fall into the trap of.. "but there is still more to do".

Thanks all.

I moved this from General into this Security forum for two reasons:

1) Nothing was in the Security forum ;)
2) This is more of a general Security question

If a program is piggy-backing onto IE as some of these "test" programs do, then Proxomitron of course should be able to handle the information.

However, I wouldn't use Proxomitron for something it wasn't meant to be: a firewall.  I'd highly suggest installing one right away if you don't already have one.

Do you have one?  Do you need links/information?

Security / Yet another IE vulnerability...

There is trickery and then there is the real deal.  Some security sites make users think their data is being read by them, when in fact it is a local read.

When I visit that page, I cannot click the links.  They don't work.

Excellent.  :D

Glad you find out the problem, I thought it was something along those lines.
