The Good Free trial ($19.95 upgrade to Pro version); works with major IM clients; quick and easy configuration; runs in background.

The Bad Trial version blocks buffer overflows but not spim.

The Bottom Line IMsecure Pro is a valuable way to secure your IM communication against hackers, identity thieves, and spim (IM spam).

Already renowned for its ZoneAlarm firewall products, Zone Labs recently offered IMsecure for Windows, the only instant-messaging security product, specifically intended to protect AOL, MSN, and Yahoo messaging client users. IMsecure for Windows defends against buffer-overflow attacks (a common means of penetrating PC defenses), stops spim (IM spam), and can encrypt instant messages between IMsecure users. IMsecure also works transparently, so you won't need to manage it after you've installed it. A free 2.51MB trial version is available from CNET
