It's a trojan. Why is this article on the front page? Clearly it should be more fitting on astalavista or sites like that.

Any programmer with the tools can change it and make it d/l something else. Like a virus or even more harmful trojan. I didn't think this site was about that stuff.

it's a test to see if your firewall can withstand a trojan based on it. it is a Proof Of Concept program, not a true virus so it is safe to have and for people to see if their firewalls are secure or not.

I was very surprised to see this here

This was the headline as reported by newsbytes.com on Apr. 30th


New Stealth Attack Found Against Personal Firewalls

Backstealth, a demonstration program that bypasses the outbound data filters in firewalls from Symantec, McAfee, and other firms, was posted last week to Packetstorm, a popular security tools site.

The utility is able to defeat outbound blocking by Kerio Personal Firewall, McAfee Personal Firewall, Norton Internet Security 2002, Sygate Personal Firewall Pro, and Tiny Personal Firewall, according to Iorio.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
