The latest version of Zone Alarm Pro does stop all applications from
accessing the net outbound unless specifically authorised, and it does
check the executable by checksum to make sure it hasn't been changed.

Of course, this doesn't cope with the clueless who are willing to click
on just about anything, particularly if it looks cute, but the one good
point about Zone Alarm Pro is that it requires a separate authorisation
before any executable is allowed to access an external site on Port 25.
