    XP-SP2 Firewall Flaw (XP - SP2)

    A "quietly released" critical patch. Another reason for replacing the SP2 firewall with a "real" firewall.

    Surely, logically, there would now be less reason to replace the SP2 firewall with a "real" firewall, since the SP2 firewall has just been made more secure?

    I think I follow your train of thought, though!
