If you go to shopip.com (the site selling the product) they are saying
some dangerous things about OpenBSD - they are calling it the world's most
secure operating system... they are implying there has not been a single
security hole in OBSD for the last 4 years.
I'm not convinced of the security of any system that has a proprietary
closed-source webadmin interface. Plus it is based on OBSD 2.9 not 3.0, so
I presume it's firewalling could do with an update.
Just another out-of-the-box firewall... except it has the name of an
ex-phreaker attached to it. I don't see the advantage of this over vanilla
OpenBSD on a nameless beige PC box maintained by someone with more than
half a braincell.
