Default The ABC's and 123's of Firewalls & Ports

Gaming in general is fun, but there's something about multiplayer gaming that's even more enjoyable. Perhaps it's the satisfaction of realizing that the car you just passed in the last lap is being driven by a real person, like you, and not some computer program. But the Internet connection that makes gaming so much fun also serves as a doorway through which nefarious hackers can send malicious code, causing havoc with your computer. Broadband users are especially fertile targets for bad seeds. That's why a firewall is so important. A good firewall, such as Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) that comes with Windows XP, protects your computer from attacks.
