Online Armor 6.0 Free - Firewall

Beitrag von CWagner » 08.11.07, 6:42

Name: Online Armor Free
Grösse: 15MByte
Lizenz: Freeware
Screenshot: /
Standalone? Joa
Admin-Rechte nötig? Klar^^
Lauffähig: NT, 2000, XP (NICHT Vista)

Da die Commodo Firewall in letzter Zeit bei mir BSOD's verursacht hat, habe ich mal bei ... esults.php geschaut, welche PF noch sehr gute ergebnisse hat. Und siehe da, in der neusten Version ist eine PFW dabei von der ich noch nie was gehört hatte:) und das sogar auf Platz 1:)

Im Test:
Am Anfang wird ein Wizard geladen, der Autostart und Startmenu durchsucht, und versucht Programme zu zu ordnen. Alles was sich nicht zuordnen lässt kann man entweder direkt erlauben/verbieten oder auf Fragezeichen lassen um bei Bedarf gefragt zu werden.
Im Betrieb scheint es soweit stabil zu laufen und bringt einen sehr übersichtlichen Activity Monitor mit.
Mal sehen wie das Teil über zeit läuft:)

Stimmt 8O - war mir nicht aufgefallen - immerhin sind die "Restfunktionen" einigermaßen brauchbar.

Online Armor FREE:
Release - 19th February 2008

Resizeable GUI
Remove Spamshield.
Multiple Desktop Support.
Fixed bug with uninstall protection
Added hotkeys disable option
Autoruns Enhancement - The scope of protection has been significantly enhanced in Online Armor - (Thanks to Tony Klein)
Additional scan during SCW added (folders where start menu items reside).

Safety Check Wizard
Realtime update during Safety Check Wizard
Faster Saving
Deeper, more thorough scan

OASIS (Online Armor Software Information Service) has been significantly updated. OASIS is our files database and in previous versions of Online Armor it was woefully out of date because it relied almost completely on manual effort - including updating the servers. OASIS2 provides the users with this data whether or not the file has been assessed, information about what the program does, how many users have seen it and some information about what it does. This is accessible as a search on the website (all users).

When a program runs that is unknown - you can click the "more" button to get the OASIS results for it. This might help the user decide what to do as it provides aggregate information about what the other users did.
You can also right click inside programs ---> File Information ---> More to get information out of OASIS.

Optimized Performance for Torrents - users complained that when using bittorrent, firewall processing created slowdowns. This issue has been comprehensively corrected. You should not see slowdowns caused by Online Armor Firewall.

Automatic Network Identification(Interfaces) - previously all interfaces were lumped in as one. Now, OA will allow interfaces to be selectively trusted/not trusted. This caters for the case of the road warrior that may plug into trusted/public networks. This now also includes VPN interfaces.

Computers Tab - Computers on the network are automatically detected and listed. It is possible to override on a computer by computer basis the trust status. For example, you could have an untrusted network - with two computers plugged into it that you trust. (or vice versa)

Manage Windows Firewall during OA Install - If the windows firewall is active, it will be disabled. If Online Armor firewall is removed, windows firewall will be reactivated.

Added firewall log viewer

Block network connection on boot (optional)

Firewall Logs are defaulted to "Off"

Bugfix - ICMP traffic is now blockable per application.

Program Guard
Install Mode added .
Allow blocking of trusted programs.

Runsafer - Added the ability for the user "Safer" program normally, or a normal program "Safer" from inside program guard (rather than have them force the setting change, if for example, they want to use a program temporarily with admin rights)

CPU Limiter added to control runaway processes; CPU Affinitity control to show which processor a program may use.

Release 16 November 2007

Fixed - Slow Shutdown after Safety Check Wizard on install.
Fixed - Slow boot Problem - Fixed problem some users had with slow initial boots after installing Online Armor Free.
Improved - Drivers start detection
Fixed - IE extensions show filename properly (including referenced by CLSID)
Fixed - Grid deleting lines changed current scroll position
Fixed - Trusted programs can be properly blocked at the firewall.
Fixed - random BSOD 0x7F (double fault subfunction)
Fixed - conflict with Artificial Dynamics "SafeSpace"
Fixed - Popups not rendering correctly sometimes on Windows 2003 Server
Some updates to help file (more to come)
Internal Stability improvements.
Conflict Fixed - Now works with anonymiser
Fixed - No Disk problem when install from CD/DVD
Added - Install Mode option on Program guard popup
Added - "Block all traffic" option
