    "You are safe!"

    March 22, 2007   |   By mguima69

    Version: BlackIce Defender Workstation Update 2.9cap

    Pros

    It work very well. The firewall has four levels: Trusting (Firewall off), Cautiour (block some), Nervous (block most) and Paranoid (block all unsolicitad inbound trafic). It still has a Application Control. When a application begins install, it alert you. Then, if the applications is legitimate you enable "install mode", else you can terminate or block. After you install some legitimate program, run the "Base Line Applications" to add the new program in the authorizeted list. Your application list is based in files and not in applications names. With it, I can play games on-line tranquil.

    Cons

    Your Application List in the "Base Line" is based in files. Not in programs. This make difficult the understanding.

    "Useless Worthless piece of trash"

    January 31, 2005   |   By faditech

    Version: BlackIce Defender Workstation Update 2.9cap

    Pros

    Un-trustworthy allows all kinds of trojans and spyware to pass warns you of nothing - updates are useless. I would recommend it to my enemies if I had one.

    Cons

    Crashes a lot, allows trojans adwares, spywares, conflicts with other software. DO NOT USE

    "Superb for anyone looking for strong protection"

    December 03, 2003

    Version: BlackIce Defender Workstation Update 2.9cap

    Summary

    I am on Windows XP, but have also tried it on 98/95 and to say the least this program is superb. For anyone looking for a way of protecting their computer from hackers and anyone trying to get in, even cookies and port surfers! Give it a try, it's worth it.

    "Doesn't provide adequate protection"

    October 02, 2002

    Version: BlackIce Defender Workstation Update 2.9cap

    Summary

    This program is heavily flawed. We tried to install it on a high profile project. It caused so many problems with the systems that we had to abandon the solution. Escalated the issues to the point where ISS consultants flew out to work on the software and they couldn't get it working. This software is very poor. If looking for a nice personal firewall, choose Sygate.

    "This product WILL NOT protect you from hackers"

    September 15, 2002

    Version: BlackIce Defender Workstation Update 2.9cap

    Summary

    Read this story if you want to know how utterly worthless this product is:

    http://grc.com/dos/grcdos.htm

    BlackIce comes in at the end. Scroll down if you don't want to read the whole thing. This product WILL NOT defend you against many typical hacker intrustions. It WILL NOT notify you when your machine has been hijacked by trojans that connect to the internet. If you want something that works, get the FREE version of ZoneAlarm. I have it and it works great. it notifies me EVERY SINGLE TIME that an app is trying to access the internet, unlike blackice, which is totally worthless.

    "ping flood vulnerabilaty"

    September 01, 2002   |   By redbad

    Version: BlackIce Defender Workstation Update 2.9cap

    Summary

    They do not provide support. Actually it is not even possible to send them an e-mail! The recommended solution on their website does not work. It used to be ok but since ISS took over it just has gone down the drain. Don't use the software it is a waste of money.
