A long time ago I found a legitimate website that would mimic a number of hacker attacks to test how well protected your computer was against hackers, and give advice on how to fix it if you’re vulnerable. I thought I had it bookmarked, but I can’t seem to find the link anymore. Does anybody know what I’m talking about?
That’s the one. Thanks!
KGS, whilst I haven’t read it for ages, but you may want to check out this page (http://grcsucks.com/) at the same time as you read through the GRC page. Last time I looked at it they did a good job of covering a lot of what is considered gospel on the GRC page.
I use the pro version of Sygate’s firewall at home and use their online tests to check my computer (with and without their firewall activated), you can find that page here (http://scan.sygate.com/prescanfaq.html) if you are interested.
