Your quite a piece fo work Dave.
And you're a smug, self-satisified fool who doesn't even understand how
blinded by his own ignorance he is.
The "secret" server is acutally
zonelabs.com, hence the workaround to edit the hosts file and map that
domain to the loopback address. Do you know how windows hosts file
works? No, here is link that may help you
Of course I know how the hosts file works. You're great at posting links
to irrelevant articles that have nothing to do with the thread, but you're
utterly unable to comprehend plain english.
The work around issued by zonealarm and their response to this list,
is proof enough for me that there was an issue and probably quite a
few other people. But not you Dave, eh?
This bit about "there being an issue" is not anything I have ever denied,
and it is only because you are unable to understand plain english that you
think I did.
If you actually READ my first post in this thread, you would understand
that I have never at any time denied that Zone Alarm has an auto-update
feature built in.
If you had actually READ Bob Cringeley's article you would see that he
describes this as "surreptitiously sending encrypted data back to four
My first post in this thread claimed that Cringely was spreading FUD, and
had provided no evidence to back up his claim.
You said he had done, but then you kept posting a link to a different
article by someone who IS NOT CRINGELY.
When I point out to you that you haven't actually contradicted what I
said, you simply post the same link to the same irrelevant article by some
entirely unconnected third party. No matter how many times you post that
link, the article will not suddenly have magically been written by Cringely
Now go back over the thread again and ACTUALLY READ IT. You should
probably get an adult to help you with the big words, otherwise you might
end up not understanding what you're reading yet again.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
