should block penetration testing attacks be turned off?

I was checking out the newest update and that feature was turned off so I pressed it on. should it be on? if not I'll turn it back off.

thanks for your help.

That setting is specific to penetration testing (i.e. not actual threats) so enabling won't really do anything unless the system is tested using third party testing tools/test exploits.  It is purely for testing purposes to verify that protection is working properly, however it is not needed for protecting your system from actual malware which is why it is turned off by default.

I hope that helps to clarify things and if there is anything else we might help with please let us know.
