ZoneLabs Won't Fix Hole In Free Firewall

  1. ZoneLabs said it will not fix a vulnerability found in the freeware version of its ZoneAlarm firewall. The company said the vulnerability was a problem found in Windows, not its firewall, and that it would require the hacker equivalent of "brain surgery" to exploit.

    Instead, ZoneLabs executives said that the vulnerability could be protected against by using one of its paid products: ZoneAlarm Plus, ZoneAlarm Pro, or its Integrity enterprise system.
