As for the Comodo test suite, I don’t speak for ESET’s developers, but I don’t regard leak tests as a useful metric: they’re rather like simulated malware, in that they try to extrapolate effectiveness at countering a real threat using an artificial, non-threatening quasi-attack. They tell you nothing about a firewall’s effectiveness at its primary job, which is keeping threats outside the perimeter in the first place.

The above link was censored, so I try again to provide the picture to show the Comodo Firewall Test Result.

Meaning, 50% of the time the firewall wasn't preventing leaks. ; <— Screen shot showing the results of their test.

So why isn't Eset Firewall blocking those exploits? Am I going to be safe to use Eset Firewall?

I am presently including a reference to your slides in my monthly Security-Related Report (#26), to be published in the online March issue of Blue Chips Magazine (it will be up online approximately March 14th; unfortunately, I have no control over that function of the magazine).
FYI I put this disclaimer at the beginning of each of these articles:
1. “If you are reading this Report/Review from directly off of an Internet search, you could very well be seeing it in HTML (or text) format. Yuk! There’s No Graphics there! To see all the beautiful Graphics in this Report/Review, the ones that we’ve worked so very hard to entertain you with – you will need to follow the procedures outlined in 2 below. Enjoy!

2. “See the actual Reports/Reviews in the Blue Chips Magazine (BCM) Archives (i.e., begin search on left-hand side of web page) at: (www.ucs.org). Note. Always choose the top option, i.e., PDF format for its beauty.”
Stephen, speaking for all of us out here in "never-never land," thank you for your dedicated service to the security of anyone who plies the Internet, and most especially for making the slides (and narration) freely available to us all. Keep up the great work!
Sincerely,
Donald Nendell, Review Editor Blue Chips Magazine
