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
- Leopard continues to have poor default firewall settings.
- Leopard mislead one security researcher in configuration choices.
