Super Affiliate Handbook

Firewalls are available for your home network as well. That's because home systems have security issues similar to those of the large corporate networks. If you connect to the Internet from home using a fast DSL or cable modem connection, that is especially true.

Firewalls are used to protect computer systems from offensive Web sites and potential hackers. The firewall filters the information coming through the Internet connection into your computer system. If the filters flag an incoming packet of information, it is not allowed through.

I learned about firewalls only after friends of mine had their computer hacked through their cable connection. They lost all of their Quicken data... and I do mean ALL.

Don't let that happen to you! Protect your valuable and private data. Install a firewall, such as ZoneAlarm, Norton or Black Ice installed on the 'gateway' computer in your home. That's the one with the Internet connection.
