Originally posted by dbzgod I used to use Zonealarm. Then I read some place that ZoneAlarm had spyware in it. It tracked everywhere you went and "called" home every few days.
How ironic.. isn't that one of the things ZoneAlarm was designed to prevent?
I personally don't waste my time with rubbish such as ZoneAlarm which introduces more problems than it fixes. I've come into contact with it when installing networks in small business offices/homes and it is an absolute pain.
Originally posted by dbzgod I will search for the article and see if I can findi t for you.
I meant that the article was wrong, not your interpretation of it. Accusations about ZA spying are made from time to time, mainly fingering ZA's Truevector technology as the culprit, but all have been proven baseless. Most likely the user has checked (or not unchecked) a box to check for ZA version updates.
