There were some stupid rumors about FW-1 being breaked into on some
newsgroups (alt.hackers.malicious I think) some time ago. What actually
happened was not Firewall-1 being broken into, someone just got access to
a badly configured FW-1 and got the output of the fwinfo command. No
hacking. No source code breaking. When you allow all the traffic into your
firewall, it does not get hacked. You just allow access into it :)
90% of the problems with firewalls is misconfiguration. Firewall-1
software is used at so many sites with very strong security, that it
probably is one of the best solution for a secure firewall.
