With regards to OS 9.0.4, what are my security risks with DSL and a static IP address?
Do I really need firewall software? Does IPNet Sentry work?
Can any of you point me to resources to learn more about Mac security, I have been unable to find anything comprehensive?

Thanks!!!
If it ain't broke, keep messin' with it

Keep your file/print sharing off. If it must be on then get a firewall.

From what I've seen in reports comparing the secure of operating systems, the classic MacOS is one of the best. Just be sure to turn off file sharing.
