This test will detect how vulnerable your computer is to exploits attacks. This test can be also used to test firewalls and routers for stability and reactions to unexpected packets. Most of the exploits are in fact denial-of-service attacks and if your system is unable to pass this examination following actions can take place:
- Some attacks may cause you computer to crash (so-called “blue screen of death”) or reboot. So all unsaved data in open applications at the time of the attack may be lost.
- The attacks can also consume large amounts of network bandwidth.
- You computer may start operating very slowly as the attacks may consume most or all of the operating system’s CPU resources.
- Some attacks can break your Internet connection.
