GFI has rolled out three new services on its e-mail security testing zone to enable administrators to test if their network is protected against infected e-mails using Iframe Remote and Object Codebase exploits.

The testing facilities found at: www.gfi.com/emailsecuritytest, are free to use and are also capable of testing anti-virus software.

“GFI’s e-mail security testing zone aims to help administrators keep abreast of the latest e-mail threats and ensure that their networks are protected against them,” says Sandro Gauci, security engineer, GFI.

“E-mails that use either [Iframe Remote and Object Codebase exploits] are dangerous because they can circumvent client level anti-virus protection and/or security settings on the target machine, thereby granting unauthorised access to a malicious user,” he adds.

The third addition to the security zone is the Eicar anti-virus software test, which has previously only been available to administrators by download.

“Administrators wishing to run this test have had to download it and then it e-mail it to themselves. They can now run it through our e-mail security testing zone, which e-mails it to them on demand,” explains Gauci.
