Security and Technology Ramblings…

I saw this today and thought it a bit funny scary. In a knowledge base article on the UK SlingBox website site, they explain how their product works with many personal firewalls.

In the last portion of this topic, where they explain how to “configure” the Windows firewall, their suggestion is to remove the check from the box labeled “Protect my computer”. This effectively turns off the Windows firewall.

I, of course, do not suggest you follow their suggestion. Bad idea.
