There are a couple things to note.
F-Secures own DNS.
Does it slow down your internet surfing???
This is also another issues need to bring up to F-Secure attention.
Because many users having this problem.
Memory resources. Does it take up too many memory resources???
Heuristic testing. This is the most common thing to do testing.
Many times it need to be fine tune!
Do a test with Eicars?
I come across many times that it failed to detect any malicious attempts.
Remote Desktop, Remote Assistant Attacks vulnerability is the most common attacks to all OS platform.
There are many attacks to these things!
I remember Sophos did mention of these attacks.
I have made this matter known years ago so I do not know if F-Secure take note of these things!
Deepguard need to check both activities in incoming and outgoing rules!
This under the category of PUAs!
I hope F-Secure did not botch up these security issues.
Go google search malware domain list and test for all malware detections.
That is important too!
That can only tell if F-Secure pass everything!
F-Secure need to send to WestCoastLabs for certification also!
Check the VB100 Rap detections.
Av-test for F-Secure 2013 result test.
Av-Comparative test for F-Secure 2013.
F-Secure 2013 firewall test. (Very bad!)
Good to hear that.
Did you try Comodo Firewall leaktest yet???
All these things need to be tested and feedback to F-Secure.
I downloaded that file, but Deepguard blocked it. If I disallow it through Deepguard, the tests will not run, but if I allow it, doesn't that defeat the object? Not sure how to proceed with that one...
I've just tested with Eicar, and it blocked the Eicar.com file immediately, but failed to block the Eicar.com.txt file when downloading, which, incidentally, Windows Defender did block. I know FS will say WD should be removed, but I've always run them side by side, and never had a problem, and indeed, FS doesn't detect it as 'conflicting software' during the installation. The fact that WD caught the Eicar.com.txt file when FSIS didn't, confirms to me that a single layer of protection isn't always adequate.
The Eicar.com.txt file was blocked by FSIS when manually scanned, as were the two zipped files, but neither of the zipped files were blocked during download either.
I performed Comodo Leak Test and the F-Secure Internet Security 2014 Beta presented vulnerabilities, what it means it failed on the test.
On the other hand I did the same test in another machine whrere it is installed Online Armor Firewall. The results was 340/340 which means it blocked everything - perfect result.
The first alert you can allow, but just the first one - this allows test starts.
ps: I've already reported to F-secure (Beta Program)
Sorry for the problems you are having to deal with.
It seems to me there is no cookie and every time we have to log in order to post here.
Hey, not your fault, Victor. Having been running two forums myself for the best part of ten years though, it's not generally good practice to make it a hassle for members to post, and on the forums I operate, this would certainly be seen as detrimental to forum traffic and member access. Given that this isn't the busiest forum in the world, I would have thought that making it easier to post would be a no-brainer.
Anyway, back to the matter in hand, I do wonder, if allowing the Comodo application through Deepguard, actually produces vulnerabilities that would otherwise have been blocked anyway? It may not be blocking each individual test, but blocking the whole application is stopping the activation of the tests as a whole - is this not full protection?
Comodo Leak Test is a safe file and can be run without any risk. So in order to start testing F-Secure Internet Security 2014 Beta when I got the first alert (F-Secure didn't reconized the file) I agreed. After the end of this test I could see F-Secure IS 2014 Beta didn't block many of the similulated risk situations proposed by Comodo Leak Test. I did the same test with Online Armor Firewall and was perfect. Well, I've already reported this to F-Secure Beta program technical support.
By the way I did another test with both firewalls - Online Armor and F-Secure IS 2014 Beta.
Shields Up test.
Online Armor - not stealthed all the ports (8 just closed)
F-Secure IS 2014 Beta - stealthed all the ports (perfect)
Best regards, Victor
