:) Well Earlier I was doing a test to see how secure my firewall is and the following message came up

It is likely that no one has told you that your own personal computer may now be functioning as an Internet Server with neither your knowledge nor your permission. And that it may be serving up all or many of your personal files for reading, writing, modification and even deletion by anyone, anywhere, on the Internet!


Can someone please explain this a little clearer I get the overview but not the part about the Servers.

Thanks For Your Help :tazz:

What Firewall are you running, and where did the message come from? (How did you test your security?)

I am running Sygate Firewall and I got this message from when I was doing a online test to see how strong my firewall is.

I think it was from a computing security research centre.

Thanks for your help do you have any ideas ? :tazz:
