Editors' Review

+

This simple security diagnostic tool helps determine your system's vulnerability against hackers, though it does so at the expense of sending some of your user information to the publisher's Web server. The plain wizard-like interface of pcAudit quickly guides you through a security test. We found the program was easily able to record keystrokes, capture a screen image of our computer, and determine our IP address. But the utility then attempted to send the collected information to the publisher's server, so be warned.

A successful "test" quickly identifies security holes in your firewall, and we soon learned our antispyware program failed to detect pcAudit's spyware component. PcAudit generates an easy-to-read HTML report and sends it to you via e-mail. Administrators of far-flung systems would find the function very helpful. Although this freeware won't replace a truly comprehensive diagnostic, it is another good tool for administrators who wish to easily test their security.

"Blocked permanently by Norton Internet Security '06"

March 01, 2006  |  By deepcdv

 |  Version: pcAudit 6.3

Pros

I like that NIS detected it as spyware. I don't think I would have liked it much if it hadn't.

Cons

I don't know of any, I deleted it after it was blocked. I think I prefer the web based security probes better than downloading something onto my hard drive and executing it.

"SPYWARE"

November 05, 2005  |  By nycjv321

 |  Version: pcAudit 6.3

Pros

SPYWARE!!! My Norton 2005 picked this up as spyware.

Pcaudit is spyware that tracks keystrokes, IP addresses, and other user information, submitting it to a predetermined server.

"Good Test trojan"

March 20, 2005  |  By slappybones

 |  Version: pcAudit 6.3

Pros

Shows how easy a trojan can access your computer.

Cons

Keep in mind that this is a Trojan program that you are knowingly running. Working knowledge of a good firewall (Not Zone Alarm) will help you defeat this and similar programs. The only firewalls that I know of that are able to shut this program down are Tiny Ver. 6.5, Agnitum Outpost and Look n Stop. Only one antivirus that I know of (Panda Platinum 2005) will identify and delete it as a potential virus or malware. Overall this is just scareware designed by a company called Internet Security Alliance in hopes that you will buy there product called Pc Internet Patrol which may or may not be a decent firewall.
