I am ignorant in security services. I have a watchguard firebox x500 we just bought. I have tested all my ports and everything looks closed or in stealth. I ran GRC's leakage tester and it is telling me that "leak test was not prevented from connecting to the Gibson research web server. You either have no firewall, you have deliberately allowed leak test to connect outbound or leak test has just slipped past your firewall's outbound protection. " by default all outgoing connections are allowed and enabled on the watchguard http service. Should I be concerned about this? what is the appropriate action I should take?
