For me the best way to tackle all sorts of phishing is just not to do anything an email tells me to do. I will log-in online and there I will be informed if I have to do anything. But the zero-phishing and the Harmony Email (which applies logic analysis on emails) purpose is to do the analysis that normally people may fail to do. Like it has the Microsoft logo, it looks like the Outlook log-in page, but the URL is microsoftpipitoday.online…

Exactly. Your approach is much better than ZA test.
I mean, I disagree with ZA test, because if users are not reading, then does not make sense to test "phishing identification skills"... by reading texts or links. Users are not reading, period.
The ZA test may give a false feeling of false skills.
It's much better your way, to train users, for example, teaching them always to visit original webpages after a message (never click inside an email). If users are mouse-clicking stuff without reading, then OK, don't read the content but stop mouse-clicking stuff... and go to the original webpage.. that's all.

I partially installed the firewall and then I couldn't take ownership of the locked folder. Had to reset Windows.

Upon successful uninstall the ownership is changed. Prior to the uninstall you can’t touch this folder, it’s part of the self-protection.

It was partially installed and I couldn't take ownership to remove the orphan file. ZA Support did advise installing a legacy ZA product so all the files could be removed by a third party uninstaller. But a partial install means installing over it fails.

Hello,for your information... But maybe you already know because I've been away for almost a month... I ,after some printing blockages in particular, had a help from the support that allowed me to install a version BETA 4.2.114.19531 and I discover a control of the applications that has solved some problems encountered with the blocking of some applications

Good! I was waiting for the App Control. Thank you.

Any news about the firewall? Is it still "on/off", or does it have granular control in beta version?
