Most of the firewall problems reported in this article were present in
previous versions - i.e. no news.

The author exaggerates in the conclusions: "The Mac OS X Leopard firewall
failed every test." when his own testing shows otherwise!

Valid criticisms might be:

- Apple has has not made significant improvements in the GUI firewall
configurations.

- Leopard continues to have poor default firewall settings.

- Leopard mislead one security researcher in configuration choices.
