Firewall Test Description

Advanced Process Termination (APT) is the quintessential process termination tool for Windows. It offers more termination techniques than any other program, making it ideal for testing security systems against termination attacks as well as terminating stubborn processes that can't be terminated conventionally.

Atelier Web Firewall Tester contains 6 very effective leak tests each of which is used to calculate a grade over 10 for the firewall that is being tested.

Test 1 - Attempts to load a copy of the default browser and patch it in memory before it executes

Test 2 - Attempts to create a thread in a loaded copy of the default browser.

Test 3 - Attempts to create a thread in Windows Explorer

Test 4 - Attempts to load a copy of the default browser from within a thread in Windows Explorer and patch it in memory before execution. This attack regularly beats most personal firewalls which require authorization for an application to load another application

Test 5 - Performs a heuristic search for proxies and other software authorized to access the Internet on port 80. Then it loads a copy of this software and patches it in memory before execution from within a thread in Windows Explorer. This is a very difficult challenge for most personal firewalls!

Test 6 - Performs a heuristic search for proxies and other software authorized to access the Internet on port 80 then requests the user to select one of them. It then creates a thread on the select process.
