Re: Network attacks protection?
Software firewalls are a great start, but nothing is ever guaranteed in the world of computers, particularly in security. Personally, I find the extra security of a hardware firewall that is built into almost every router to be a great extra line of detection that can make it appear that there are not even any computers connected to the line. I'd suggest for your college to get a router, even if he only plans on having one computer, just to have that extra layer.
