Kaspersky Security Suite CBE in 2009 is basically the same program as the known and renowned Kaspersky Internet Security but it was developed exclusively for the Computerbild and has a native German.
If you are using(/used) Kaspersky then you will not find difficulties in using this version even if it is in German language, since for most lay users is not recommended to use this program unless someone here can find a way to translate this suite.

Today, i read an article on my friend Rick’s (whatsonmypc ) blog about “Free layers of protection”. It somehow inspired me to write about how to check the security of your machine on Internet. So now, I’m starting an Internet security Test Series which cover all test to check your computer security on internet one by one, which helps you to know how much safe you are.
In Internet Security Series-I today we test firewall
Basically, a firewall is a barrier to keep destructive forces away from your property/computer. In fact, that’s why its called a firewall. Its job is similar to a physical firewall that keeps a fire from spreading from one area to the next.
So, this test will check your computer for ports that are commonly left open. Open ports could allow your computer to be compromised. This firewall test will also check for open ports known to be used by Viruses and Trojans.
Are you ready to test your firewall?
1. if yes,then Click Here
2. Scroll down and you find a heading firewall testing -get started. In a box enter your IP which is written on that page and enter.
3. Here you can choose which type of security scan you want to perform:
- Standard Security Scan- This is for most internet users. This security scan checks commonly used ports as well as test for known ports used by trojan and virus programs.
- Ranged Security Scan – This scan allows you to test a range of ports to help determine services running on all 65,535 ports. This is for network administrators and security professionals .
- Advanced Security Scan- This gives you option to enter the ports you want scanned. Simply separate them with a comma such as 23,80,27374. For a UDP port scan ,simply add UDP, to the list of ports, for example: UDP,20,23.
4. After Select anyone of the above three click start scan. After few seconds this will display your result.
Now you can see how powerful and secure firewall you have ..
