    Installing a decent firewall should take care of this security risk. I
    noticed long ago that Xandros doesn't have a firewall either.

    Windows XP / Vista / Windows 7 users should not have these problems
    right out of the box. As people complained and Microsoft listened. I
    guess somebody forgot to tell the Linux crowd to fix theirs as well.
