Personal firewalls easy to breach

Here is a snip

It’s one thing to rush an application to market without thinking about security. It’s another to rush a security application to market. But that’s what’s happened with several personal firewalls — a product category that was a virtual nonentity a year ago but is now standard fare for anyone on a broadband connection, including telecommuters.

I however have a different solution. Break out that old P90 or 486, get 2 NIC's and install Linux. Then with 4 or so lines of code you have a Secure, Functional, and Free Firewall.
