Disclaimer of Liability

I understand that in the course of this audit, Internet Security Alliance's program, pcAudit™, will attempt to collect and transfer to its server the following information: this computer's name or any identification assigned, IP address, along with directories and file names, a snapshot of this computer's screen and anything typed (keystrokes) during this audit. Upon completion of audit, you will be provided with a security evaluation showing the security status of this computer.

All information or data collected during this audit program, will only be available to you, and will be deleted automatically after about 5 minutes, unless deleted sooner.

Internet Security Alliance™ will use the collected information or data only for the purpose of this audit program, so Internet Security Alliance™ can generate an audit evaluation report about the security of this computer.

I understand that information collected during this audit will not be encrypted while in transit and can possibly be observed by a third party during and after the audit.
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.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
