Has anyone noticed the different results from having your firewall probed via online sites? I run Norton'03 the result from symantec probe was scary, and advised i buy Internet Security '03. Testing on grc.com, and sygate s.o.s, i found that the vulnerability identified by good old symantec were all blocked or stealthed on grc/sygate. Can you trust these online tests? and, which site can you trust for accurate results? Discuss
I always grc.com. Of course in all truth I have no real way of knowing how accurate the results really are but the fellow seems well respected in the field. Glowing references to his work can be found in many places.
I have always trusted Shields Up, no sales involved. It sounds like Norton are trying to scare you ( as appears has happened )to sell you their software. Possibly a con trick. I personally would not trust them, though others might.
