Message Body

With the topic being broadband, I would like to suggest that all broadband users run a personal firewall to protect their computers from hacker probes and other problems.

Zonealarm offers an excellent free one at:

Details about why your machine needs a firewall are at Steve Gibson's great "Shields Up" site:

Also on that page is a link that will allow you to run two free tests to identify vulnerabilities on your machine.
