I have just spent the last hour on a fascinating site
http://grc.com concerning viruses & firewalls, I think you should take a peek and mention some of the test facilities available in your newsletter, the item on http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm certainly makes interesting reading, if not raising grave doubts.....

I'm pleased to say that I use tiny personal firewall and my system passed ok, but others may not be so lucky!!!!!!!!!!!

If you think its of value and new to you, I wouldn't argue to a mention in dispatches, it helps to keep our networking active.

Happy reading
