Security Tests

Please delete if there is a similar thread somewhere. It would be nice to have a list of security tests & suites we can use to evaluate our configurations, and maybe make it sticky ... anybody have any suggestions? I've used Gibson, but there must be others.

I also found Matousec which has a test suite but also have a bunch of bad rep.

And here are a couple from Comodo, labeled as online tests but they are actually downloads, go figure ...

i vote for matousec suite,sure matousec has bad rep when it comes to their testings and how they conduct those tests,but then again those bad reps most often than not originate from fanboys and/or the companies.
anywho that shouldn't even concern us since we're only after the results and that test suit is pretty comprehensive.
hopefully this'll be a sticky since most of those so called protection products don't really do their job,and most of the users are left with a false sense of security

HDD very slow, but all tests OK??
I've had some computer behavior that I don't understand. Perhaps someone can explain what I'm seeing. Over the past year, I've had two desktop computer systems, both 64 bit windows. The first system had a WD 300Gbyte Velociraptor disk. It also had a defective motherboard that I replaced. ...
