Re: Microsoft to ship new versions with firewall enabled

No answer on that one, However Mac OS X also includes a built in firewall.

On the configuration angle, the Microsoft ICF (Internet Connection
Firewall) blocks everything by default.

John Markoff reports in the New York Times that Microsoft plans to
change
how it ships Windows XP due to the worm.  In the future Microsoft
will
ship both business and consumer verisons of Windows XP with the
included
firewall enabled by default.

Hmm...I didn't even know XP had a built-in firewall.  Any bets on how
long it is before other companies with software firewall products bring
suit against Microsoft for bundling a firewall in the OS?
