Some people ( Jim Watt, winged ) are writing a lot of negative stuff about
your posting in other newsgroups. So, I did some research; joined some other
newsgroups. Yes, the next time I'm offering something I'll do that first.

Thanks winged and Jim, you saved me a lot of translation time. I did read a
lot of the FAQ and I think it could be half the lenght as it is today. It
has a lot of Unix stuff in it and not much M$ (= windows) related. I don't
agree with the writings about DMZ or even about the firewall basics. There
must be information in the FAQ about the one way XP firewall ( a terrible
construction and why it's terrible. To much people say "I have a firewall
protecting me"; but have lots of active trojans on there pc because XP isn't
interested in blocking outgoing information. You could stop the M$
phone-home information ;-)).
I miss the today's combination router and firewall; much attacks are
blocked by the router and not by the firewall. The FAQ gives a lot of
information about routers, but not enough ( VPN is missing ; wireless
security is missing)
>> We wrote this FAQ for computer systems developers and administrators (
FAQ 1.2 )
okee, but if there security knowledge is that low they should have end-user
privilages and NO administrator rights (never!).
I think the FAQ was good 10 years ago but not for today's security.
