You firewall anything enough it's "secure" - at least until it isn't.

probably were running strictly DMZ'd servers. We made the mistake of proxying into the DB behind our cisco firewall, because microsoft advertised that the DB could serve pages. We had some management pages coming off of SQL server, and that's how they got in. If I remember right, there were buffer overrun exploits in the sqlxml processing back then, but like I said it has been 20 years now.

We weren't the only ones affected, like i said.
Real programmers use butterflies
