While playing the demo version of starscape, my kerio sunbelt personal firewall reports it has blocked a code injection attempt, listing starscape.exe as both the "culprit" and "victim". I haven't been able to consistently reproduce this, but it seems to occur whenever starscape opens a URL in my browser (e.g., a purchase link).

Does (a part of) starscape utilize any code injection techniques, or is this a false positive? And, if it's not a false positive, can I expect any problems if my firewall keeps blocking those attempts?

It's a false positive, Starscape doesn't do anything like that.

How safe is my firewall behind a modem router? I've been using Zone Alarm firewall (free edition) for many years now & in all security tests it comes up as all ports in stealth mode, so hackers don't know you're actually connected. The problem is I'm no longer using dial-up & instead have a ADSL Ethernet Modem/Router- Hurricane 9200, it is now showing that ports 21, 23 & 80 are open as well as ping, the rest are showing as closed. I'm sure that beyond the router itself the ports on the computer's own IP are still in stealth mode but hackers now maybe KNOW that there is a computer there somewhere because of the router responses.

If you're using up to date, recent software (i.e. windows 7, IE9, etc) and have windows security essentials (free) running and up to date (or similar AV software) and you don't visit dodgy websites (warez, etc) and you don't click on suspicious email links and you don't download hundreds of random programs off the net. You'll be fine. I think it's easy to get a bit paranoid about this kind of stuff.
