It means left side menu of our home page although the link to the security wizard is now located in one of the center blocks.

That's cool. I also appreciated the reference to Wilder's. Didn't know it existed. Good resource.

Wilders is an excellent resource but the information does require a degree of filtering. There is a lot of promotional stuff on there from developers and those associated with developers which is heavily biased. There are also legions of fanboys supporting various products. Wilders has helped to regulate this by banning this v that threads and the publication of home produced malware tests. Nevertheless, it is easy for folks to gain the impression that many of those posting there are "experts" whereas they are not. There are plenty of posts for instance insisting that a firewall cannot be "any good" unless it achieves full stealth with the GRC Shields Up! test.

Overall though pretty much all you need to know about most things security related, after some filtering.

Their Linux section is good too.

Thanks for the heads up advice. I've noticed with a lot of forums, the need to confirm the advice given before using it because you don't know where/who its coming from.

FYI the Security Wizard was dropped from this site in June, 2014 because it was only getting about 100 hits per day.
