Nothing is completely fool prof or completely
invulnerable and there are quite a few web servers
out there that do not have a firewall. A firewall is
there only to set up another layer of defense. The
other layers are to limit the services available on the
host system, validation on input received from the
web server, and patch the web server software and
operating system against all security vulnerabilites.
