It absolutely baffles me that people think there safe without a fireewall on dial up. Your not.

Outpost is a very good firewall IMO. [/B]
I am a little late in coming in on this conversation but I will go with UK_Trader on this. To cut a long story very short, you see the "IP logged" hyperlink at the bottom of every post? If a hacker gets mod access to this board they have access to any IP addie who has recently posted.............bah, humbug, it aint gonna happen to me, THINK again, it may and probably will if you don't take precautions. What's more is the fact that your computer may be used in a DoS attack and the first you will know of it is when the security services come banging on your door.

Don't let the hackers control your computer, don't let them have access to your bank account and don't let them atack other machines, through yours...PROTECT YOURSELF NOW!

I tried outpost but i did npt like it it eats a hell of a lot of bandwith, it tracks everything you do and logs it all down, Maybee it was just me not knowing how to configure it, but i do completely agree with uk trader, for 56k users although your ip changes, there are many people out there that could just send u a trojan which acts like a remote control, then when u use services such as msn or yahoo they can track your ip as soon as u log on then attempt to gain access. So be wise GET YOURSELF A FIREWALL!
