    indeed it is good for newbs, although some of it could be in more detail for example:


    But the firewall secures my computer from access to my Windows-shares!

    Why are you sharing your harddisk and printers to the entire internet? Why don't you just switch it off?
    of course they could have said open up the port, or password protect.... but then again that is still not secure and after all it is for newbs
