Heads up -- BlackICE firewall software is being targeted by a new worm. Users of BlackICE are advised to disconnect these systems from the Internet as soon as possible, since simply being connected will expose you to infection, and this worm will corrupt your hard drive and eventually crash your system.
This illustrates the weakness of software firewalls, as Scott M. pointed out three months ago. If you're not using dial-up, I'd advise a separate firewall box.
