While going over settings for my newly installed Online Armor firewall I came across this website listed under the website management folder. When I googled it I found out it is a way for every site I visit or that my system blocks to be reported to someone. But I don't know who or what, I'm very leery of this and need some clarification from your staff about the safety of having it allowed. If it is a harmful application how and what should I do about it? Squid analysis report generator, when I right click it I get a message that says: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied. If I'm just being overly paranoid please let me know, upon further investigation I see that it is reported as being unsafe and a high security risk. Why is it on my system and how did it get there?

Open Online Armor/General/Internet settings and untick:
"Send anonymous information about programs I choose to allow or deny etc... No personally identifiable information is stored. For more details see our privacy policy".
This sort of info. collection is not uncommon among security software vendors as it helps them futher develop their product.

I have used OA for years and it's one of the best firewalls around. Light on resources and easy to live with.

Thanks for the info, I've also used OA for a couple of years but just went back to them recently. I'm glad it appears as if nothing is out of the ordinary. I'll keep my eyes open for anything suspicious.
