SE-"Quote:Zone Labs was purchased by the Israeli firm Checkpoint Software in
December 2003, and the Israeli's immediately revamped Zone Alarm's True
Vector Engine. Now there are few knowledgeable software security experts who
trust that any new Zone Alarm products after this buy out actually protect
users from spying by U.S. and Israeli governments."


Thats exactly why I do not trust it any more. I will only use an older
version if at all, with NO UPDATING. But since I suspect the product
completely now, I have uninstalled it from every computer that I use.

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF A SIMILAR PRODUCT NOT OWNED BY THE ISRAELIS???

Any help would be greatly appreciated
pk

ps Why do 2 Israeli firms do most of the telephone billing for US customers,
Does anyone else have a problem with this???

MISTY I'm sorry to say this but you are beein somewhat paranoid and
racist. An israely is just someone born in Israel... why do you feel
it is BAD for an israely to make software?

My computer is made in Germany, my webcam is made in Portugal, my
monitor is made in Korea, my keyboard is made in Taywan, my mouse is
made in China, my OS is made in USA, my firewall is made in Cyprus,
etc... what's the problem with that?

Name any security expert who has expressed such an opinion.

If you're using a computer with a firewall athat hasn't been updated,
which is the same as no firewall at all, your PC will be riddled with
trojans, hijackers and a host of other nasties within 20 minutres - so
get the hell out of cyberspace, the rest of us don't want to be
infected!!

Apart from anything else I'd rather trust a product made by the
Israelis than Bill Gates but then I've got nothing to hide.

So, if my condoms were made by Israeli's I should cease to wear them?
And increasing social contact would get me what?
