VILLENEUVE D ASCQ, France, June 12 /CNW/ -- The software company AxBx is
announcing the release of its new program: PC SECURITY TEST 2007. Primarily
informational, PC Security Test is a freely available tool that is designed to
educate users about computer security. Too often, family computers are either
badly protected or not protected at all. Recent studies show that between 71
and 82 percent of PCs are infected with spyware.

PC Security Test is a free program that gives the user access to tools,
information, and advice to test and improve the security of your computer. The
tools allow users to quickly and easily verify that their computers are well
protected against current threats like viruses, spyware, and hackers.
Additional tools test the antivirus protection of instant messaging software
and the security settings of your web browser.
In a few clicks, PC Security Test can simulate virus and spyware attacks
in order to evaluate a computer's level of protection. The simulations pose no
risk to the computer and are based on standard tests like port scans, EICAR,
and CMESYS. At the end of the trial, PC Security Test deletes all files used
in the simulation.
The software also includes a quiz that allows users to test their
knowledge of computer security. A printable guide entitled "10 Tips for
Securing Your Computer," written by computer security experts, is also
provided with the program.
The program works on all versions of Microsoft Windows(R), from Windows
95 to Windows Vista.
