Online security test website. Snakeoil?

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

The last test on 'Compliance' only means much if you have a proper "data-loss prevention solution" or DPI tool on your network that prevents outgoing 'sensitive' or proprietary data. My test failed in 2 out of 5 test areas and this is normal.
(if you have a firewall that doubles as leak prevention - results may vary)

. it detects access to cryptostorm unhindered
. it detects access to embargoed locations (nice!)

For the Security test it only failed in the areas that Google's blocking service fails to detect or block since i left it OFF. It also did not indicate if any DNS leaks were found.

It looks like a scam.
