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.
