I'm still using Sygate (v5.6 build 2808). AFAIK it's working ok, but it doesn't get very good points at
Secunia also mentions 3 unpatched Security Patches:
There's a solution for 2 of those, but I'm not sure how to set it up in Advanced Rules.
| Change your firewall rules to block all udp traffic, inclusive trafik | with source port 137 and 138.
I know how to block /all/ UDP (incoming and outgoing) in Advanced Rules, but which ports (Remote? Local?) ? Why are 137 and 138 explicitly mentioned?
| Explicitly block 127.0.0.0/8 addresses manually in advance rules | section. Also you should verify that your perimeter filters block such | spoofed traffic.127.0.0.0/8?
The advisory says "this shouldn't be possible from remote as all gateway routers and firewalls should filter traffic that is obviously spoofed". I'm behind a router with a built-in firewall and NAT, so I should be safe?
Can I fix this or should I just switch to another freeware firewall?
