    That's why I like to go with a NAT router a border device in front of the

    that provides instant protection from the Internet. One can get a good
    router that cost as much as any PFW solution.

    Same here with the router, it does all of my firewalling for me.....I tweak
    it occasionally, but not much.....

    ok, caught the read, tho they do provide the fix that is needed to correct
    the "bug" simply by specifying the subnet of your local address that is
    allowed to access your shared documents. But even so I agree it should not
    have to have this done and should not be exposed by default, file and print
    should be disabled by default to keep the average user from exposing their
    files. I am sure MS can make a simple patch for that ? lol, well lets hope..
