AWFT details

  • Description

    from the web site: 'Atelier Web Firewall Tester is a tool for probing Personal Firewall (PFW) software strengths against outbond attempts from network trojan horses and other malware or spyware. A number of existing PFW software is unable to cope with these kind of issues and completely fail on each of the three tests AWFT submit them. Some PFW software have settings which allow some improvements after a few tweaks. You have to try and obtain the best compromise without nullifying the quality of your network experience. Either way, bear in mind: If your PF software does not score 10 on the tests, your system is vulnerable. If it scores nearly 10, this is a good indication that a serious work has been done by your PF software producer to reduce unhautorized outbond traffic risks.
