[ CRITICAL ] Anti-malware for Mac firewall not working with Ethernet connection

Hi,

 

I downloaded the Antivirus for Mac to give it a spin and found that the built-in firewall does actually nothing:

Once all the traffic has been supposedly blocked I still can access any website, ping any site from the terminal and well, check that the TCP and UDP traffic is happily flowing.

 

I also tried rebooting the system but the issue persists. Am I missing something?

 

Thanks

Hi i90rr,

 

As I checked with the RND team, this is a known issue with Sierra Operating System and they are aware of it. However, I have also brought your post to their attention.
