Kaspersky Anti-Hacker offers you application (software) control and filtering control (you make rules to sort information going in and out of your computer). Kaspersky Anti-Hacker lets you customize port (ports are computer doorways) and other settings for software. If you want to adjust a port rule-for example, you want to change which port Microsoft Messenger uses-you can specify the port (or port range) then add your preferences. You can opt to receive a notice when software tries to violate your rule, or you can opt to have this noted in the log. The message will list the application name, address and ports.
Ease of Use:
Kaspersky Anti-Hacker\\\'s basic features are simple. Once you try to customize settings, though, you\\\'ll realize the task is complex and you\\\'ll need to spend time in the help section.
To check an application rule setting feature, we adapted rules for some software. The long rule conditions list of would be difficult for a novice computer user to sort through and understand. With all the choices, a novice would most likely make mistakes.
Ease of Installation:
We had no difficulties with installation.
Kaspersky Anti-Hacker can stealth (hide) your identifying computer and ports, block Trojans (dangerous software) and exploits (attempts to steal your data), but Kaspersky Anti-Hacker won\\\'t stop cookies or hide your browser information.
Kaspersky Anti-Hacker\\\'s documentation makes finding an answer easy for most anyone. When you are working on a particular topic but unsure of a step, press the help button and the firewall will take you directly to the correct help topic in the index. This is a time-saver, especially since there are so many options available. Kaspersky Anti-Hacker also offers email and toll-free telephone support 24 hours a day.
With some work, Kaspersky Anti-Hacker has potential to compete with top firewall products. What it lacks are features to safeguard data completely and the ability to control adware cookies. Without these measures, you\\\'ll collect all kinds of nasty garbage—even subtle attacks-after spending just a few hours online.
