Do you think firewalls really protect you ? Or they make you think they are protecting you but they are just stealing your information like spywarez for example?
I'm just curious
Seriously, dude... You're being paranoid.
Did the question just pop into your head, or have you read/observed something that makes you wonder?
You're question is so vague it's almost unanswerable. If you really want a general answer, though, it's "No; firewalls are not spyware." Happy?
i remember reading an article about suspect data sent from the free version of zone alarm which they though was spyware.
they have to pay for the development some how.
As long as you have Ad-aware and Spybot Search & Destroy, you really don't need to worry about it.
yup, i agree, spybot does what it says on the can.....and then some. personally i think every1s getting more paranoid these days with filesharing.
i regularly check my comp 4 ad/spyware, but as 4 firewalls who knows 4 sure, i just think it would be a little far fetched 4 your own protection 2b spying on u, i mean....most the guys on here didnt pay 4 their pc protection, but u dont get your door bust down 4 that, surely that would be the best way of checking on their products i would have thought
