    hmm...
    So ... basically if it works they will have directorys/files, your ip, a screenshot, and your computer name. Oh and all this will be transmitted unencrypted.

    I have started my own security company called We Haxors @ Your Hom3
    The way it works is: You let me into your house and I sit down at your computer. If I can look at your documents and files and access stuff like e-mail, favorites, online-banking and IM then you are not secure.
    Anyone interested -- drop me a line.

    Well the primary problem with this "security check" is that it is an installed program, where in by you are telling the system that you authorize this program to run. My system might actually prevent it as if I don't give the app outbound or server permisions it can't connect to the net. (but I am not going to test that theory). Fimchick's analogy is dead on.

    Thats the thing your firewall doesnt prompt you to allow this application to connect to the net. This company/tool has been around for awhile. Their disclaimer reads as any exploit testing tool would read, of course they are going to cover their butts, but they do not themselves exploit your data.

    film chick and maveric has it right...this program does nothing but get your permission to accomplish whatever it's accomplishing

    as far as internet access out, you provide that by clicking the link
