Auto Decide or Ask??
« on: May 18, 2010, 01:58:13 AM »
I am trying out AIS and have firewall rules set to "auto-decide" which of course eliminates a lot of pop-ups but trying GRC leak test,AIS allowed it to run. Why would AIS allow GRC to connect to the net? (Paranoia speaking here) Wink ? Should I be concerned? Should I just go with "ask"? even though that would initiate more pop-ups? Just wondering if "auto-decide" should be trusted

No placebo here... Just to be better in the picture?

Maybe GRC is in Avast's whitelist so it is allowed to run?

That AIS will not block the GRC tests just to people applaud it.
GRC tests are clean ones and avast won't block it just as a placebo.
If an infected file does the same job, AIS should detect it due to the antimalware signatures.
