Think you know security? You might want to think again!

Recent statistics shows that computers with Internet access are attacked by hackers on average every 39 seconds. So, that begs the question - are you sure you're doing enough to protect your personal data?

Leading security software company, Adnitum, have created a Security Quiz which asks the Top 150 Internet security questions. To be safe from internet security hassles, you will need to be able to answer these correctly.

Agnitum Outpost Firewall is a firewall software product from agnitum.com and gets a 4 Stars SoftSea Rating. The Agnitum Outpost Firewall provides proactive all-in-one protection against hackers, spyware, Trojan horses, keyloggers, ID theft, and unauthorized connections. Of particular interest is the integrated anti-spyware module that provides real-time protection for all the running applications, system memory and registry entries. Alongside real-time spyware monitoring, Outpost features an ID theft prevention ability, which lets users specify which data that should remain private and that is never permitted to leave the computer via browsers, IM software, email client or any other data transport mechanism.

With Outpost detecting and blocking all known types of hacker attack, monitoring network activity and applications, blanking out banners and pop-ups, and quarantining suspicious email attachments, you have a comprehensive security solution. In addition Outpost's Network Activity Monitor watches every connection between your computer and the Internet, alerting you immediately to any connection that may be unauthorized so you can take appropriate action.

In a neat feature, Outpost's Attack Detection automatically blocks network probes, zombie attacks and other remote attempts to access your PC with an intrusion definitions database that's continually updated. The new Anti-Leak ability prevents information leakage or theft through inappropriate data exchange techniques.

Now would be a good time to test the security setting for you computer now by taking the Security Quiz.
