I was doing some surfing the web yesterday and one of the web sites haven't
been to for a while had some weird characters around the web site. At first
I assumed that they were doing some debugging since it appeared to be random
4 digit codes in random places on the web site. Later in that same session
I had some problems viewing one of the theme demo pages on the same site; so
I disabled the Privacy system in ZA and notice that the web site worked
properly without the codes. So I investigated it a little more and here are
the results of my tests:
1. I.E. 5.5 & Netscape 4.7x will both show the page with random 4 digit
codes randomly through the page.
2. Netscape 6.2.1 won't show the page -- the view source for the page only
shows "< html>< body>< /body>< /html>" (without the spaces)
3. Opera 6.01 refuses to do anything with the page.
If I disable the Zone Alarms Privacy features (i.e. Click on the Browser in
Program Control->Programs and turn off Privacy) all the browsers work
properly as then ZA is no longer filtering the connection.
I filled out the form on ZA's website to report this and got back a nice
canned response that had nothing to do with the problem I reported. So I
replied and got another stupid response from them that again had very little
to do with the problem.
So can someone confirm this problem:
I'm using Windows 2000 fully patched.
Zone Alarm 3.0.118 (Latest Version)
