Terrifying results from online test

    I did this test, which simulates an unknown Trojan attack on a windoze
    computer. The program successfully bypasses my beloved (and well
    configured) Kerio firewall. It also evades my universities hardware
    firewall, which is configured very well (the admins are the block all
    apart from port 80 type :-( )
    Check out PCAudit from http://www.pcinternetpatrol.com/page/view/49
    The program works by causing applications that have the privileges to
    connect to the internet to upload data to their server.
    I thought I would be safe because I configure kerio so it only permits
    outbound connections to IP addresses of the resources that I connect
    to, for example smtpserver:25, nntpserver:119, pop3server:110 and
    proxy:8080
    PCAudit appears to scan its way out. Even when I click deny it gets
    through!
    The company behind PCAudit have publicised a vulnerability that affects
    almost all firewalls. Their PCAudit program could easily be reverse
    engineered by crackers, and then a real and more malicious Trojan could
    be produced that bypasses almost all firewalls.

    What do you guys think of this? Did you pass the test (without
    unplugging your internet wire/blocking all traffic Lol)?
