Automated “Bots” Overtake PCs Without Firewalls Within 4 Minutes

Experiment Reveals How Different Platforms Protect Against Internet Attacks

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., November 30, 2004 – Avantgarde today released a study that showed that automated “bots,” worms and other threats pummeled six computer platforms over a two-week period with 305,955 total attacks. Results also revealed that an inadequately protected computer fell victim to an actual compromise within four minutes of first plugging into the Internet. The study, conducted in partnership with security consultant and reformed hacker Kevin Mitnick, analyzed the security performance of commonly-used computer platforms against Internet attacks in the wild when running on the default security settings designated by vendors. The study revealed that Linspire (Linux) and Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 1 with the free Zone Labs ZoneAlarm firewall received the fewest number of Internet attacks throughout the two week experiment. The regular Windows XP Service Pack 1 system without a third-party firewall was the most vulnerable, and was successfully compromised by an attack within four minutes of first plugging into the Internet.
