I came across ShieldsUp recently.
I write to ask if anyone can advise is SheildsUp a genuine "Peoples Interest" test or is the test
more about Software Development testing on the part of whoever ?
The same goes for Leak Test
In the FAQ it was pointed out that some Software did not reveal Test Leak as malware when ideally it should have.
The explanatory link is broken, which supposedly Quotes Vendor Text confirming it to "Safe"
I can appreciate that Steve Gibson might be an expert in all these security issues and may be acting in "peoples" best interests. Although at the same time may be just using Social Engineering to obtain whatever information he can from testing his external environment.
If Steve Gibson's intensions are genuine.
I notice also the FAQ goes back to 2001 !
What's happened since?
The site does contain a wealth of interesting tests, information and explanations.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
