Tooleaky test result with zonealarm

  Tick Tock 20:20 30 Oct 2004

I have just downloded the tooleaky program to
my desktop to test with zonealarm,clicking on it
asks if IE can access the internet after allowing
it a message came back saying your firewall is a joke and did not prevent tooleaky from reporting
home.Can somebody explain this action as i always
allow IE access,could another spy get out so easy.

This site has numerous checks to see if your system is " secure " . You can even download a file called " Leak Test " to try your system out.

Yes been there and it passed the tests and downloded
leaktest and ok there but it still allows tooleaky
from another site to launch IE.

TooLeakey is a programme used to show the 'power' of a firewall. If someone wanted to hack a computer a firewall would not stop them. A home computer will not be hacked. click here and why Steve Gibson is bonkers here click here
