Hi,
In your advisory
(http://download.zonelabs.com/bin/free/securityAlert/35.html) regarding this
issue, you have mentioned that only the Free Version of ZA is vulnerable and
ZA Pro is in the un-affected list. Without downplaying your advisory on this
issue, I want to confirm that I have tested this for ZA Pro 3.7.159 and
found vulnerable. Although the current version (6.0) is not vulnerable. 

IMHO It will be a big mistake to conscider all versions of Zone Alarm Pro is
un-affected. ZoneLabs advisory on this is only valid for the current version
(6.0) of ZA Pro which I have tested and found it to be unaffected. 

Again, the ZAP report by the vendor indicates and I quote:

^^^
ZoneAlarm Pro, ZoneAlarm AntiVirus, ZoneAlarm Wireless Security, and 
ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 6.0 or later automatically protect 
against this attack in the default configuration. 

ZoneAlarm Pro, ZoneAlarm AntiVirus, ZoneAlarm Wireless Security, and 
ZoneAlarm Security Suite version 5.5 are protected against this attack by 
enabling the .Advanced Program Control. feature. 

Check Point Integrity client versions 6.0 and 5.1 are protected against 
this attack by enabling the .Advanced Program Control. feature. 
^^^

This does not include the version 3.7.159 you are testing.  In my 
interpretation of the report the vendor is not stating that said version 
is "unaffected".   Ergo... time to upgrade!
