  1. delete hash from rule, jetico 1 fw (useful for Firefox nightlies)

    one of the old jetico v1 annoyances was popping up to ask permission whenever
    firefox or tbird updated (nightlies).

    looking to try firewalls, i reread this trick to update hash in rule from httpd.confused at
    fileforum:
    "You reconfigure it. All of it. For every changed application this applies to. Every time
    it changes. (Or, you can use the unintuitive trick where you edit an existing rule, put
    the cursor on the line that lists the path to the (old) EXE file, and then click OK. This
    forces the hash to be updated. Yes, you really do need to put the cursor in the path
    text box. And you'll then have to delete the new rule(s).)"

    http://www.google.com/search?q=jetic...+%7C+nightly+%
    7C+nightlies+rule+%7C+rules+%7C+edit
    (First google result is this fileforum post
    fileforum.betanews.com/review/1077527060/1/view)

    so, i wondered what would happen if the file no longer existed (at that path?)

    i deleted firefox.exe, and uninstall\helper.exe
    then i did the httpd.confused dehash workaround. the hash disappeared from the rule.

    i then undid those 2 deletions (via Edit menu of explorer) and did a firefox nightlies
    update, and firefox restarted without any popup from jetico. (eg, annoyance gone)


    (updates\0\updater.exe gets wiped out by firefox's update process, so the dehash
    workround makes updater.exe's rule hashless, without need to temporarily delete
    updater.exe.)


    i suppose no hash check may be less secure, but...

    this could also be useful for belarc advisor updates, etc.


    ____________
    a small speedup tip when opening rule to edit: double clicking on the path or port
    opens the rule edit dialog with whichever you clicked ready to edit. so for above
    dehash workaround, double click the *path* of rule to be dehashed, click once in the
    path, then click OK until rule closes.

    (though i think the hash disappears *before* you close the rules edit dialog).

    No, wasn't. Just disable those useless popups.

    > i suppose no hash check may be less secure,



    No, doesn't. Any application is free to circumvent or actively answer those
    useless popups, thus it was never secure in any way.

    Hm... and win98 is a low security joke that only fools would run (yes, this
    proves that there's millions of fools out there)

    Beside that, where's your fup2?
