Default New Security Wizard now online

Hi all,

we have finally migrated our Security Wizard to Drupal 6. So, we are not redirecting to an older Drupal on Urltrim.com anymore. The new Wizard is nicely integrated into the main site now. Check it out:

Great job George

I just have a couple of ideas/suggestions.

The part labeled "The Most Important Security Advice of all" (being at the end) is I feel in danger of being skipped by some users, having already been dished out with the software recommendations they were looking for, i.e. AV & firewall.

I also believe we should be including the DNS filtering options such as Clear Cloud, Comodo and Norton, and put these in a more prominent position within the Wizard results, together with WOT.

IMO these should come first, before the AV

A free DNS filtering solution that can be added OpenDNS.

At the time I made that comment, ClearCloud was by far the best solution and also free. Now unfortunately it is only available as part of a commercial suite. The free version of OpenDNS does offer filtering options but Norton has better malware protection.

Maybe Comodo Secure DNS?

Looks promising and obviously a lot of work is being put into the new service. I guess we won't know how good it is, or even exactly what it does, until it comes out of Beta and the existing servers are decommissioned.
