Re: settings attack detection

Hi runner978,

Firewall automaticall detects and blocks specific attacks. And Yes, they are self editable , just click on the specific atack detection name and set it YES to be detected , make sure to click Apply and OK. Restart the computer once and they should stay turned on.

Re: settings attack detection

The items appearing in "Attack Detections" apparently are really old  detections that no longer are a problem and should have been removed  from the interface but it's a case of someone in the programming  department literally forgetting to do it.  Turning them on or off  shouldn't make any difference.
