Commercial[edit]

This sure reads like a commercial.

Which parts do you have issue with? Jwoodger (talk) 05:16, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

I would not think this was a commercial if it included direct mention of who the competitors are, etc. Also, what OSS will offer the same things. But, I think an entry on a company cannot be labeled "commercial" automatically. Its Fuzzy. Besides, sometimes all one wants to know is what the company sells and a link to it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JustAnotherJoe (talkcontribs) 19:08, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, but this has more of a feel of a commercial than other companies's entries flagged as advertisements.173.206.128.239 (talk) 10:51, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

A misleading part[edit]

The following

Untangle is capable of performing cryptographic attacks against users of secure services on its networks.

implies that software is able to mount an attack. In fact administrator of a client machine has to install additional root CA certificate in order for this to work. This is explained on the [1] under details. Vmpn (talk) 01:31, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

[2] uses the marketing-friendly euphemism "man-in-the-middle style decryption" in place of the widely recognized man-in-the-middle attack. However, I grant that my original wording may have suggested a more directly cryptanalytic approach, so I will change the introductory paragraph accordingly.
