Just a note for those of you who may be (and all of us should be) worried about the security and privacy of our systems when on the Internet.

Steve Gibson (Gibson Research) has a few updates that you should read and a couple of new and updated utilities you may be interested in. I know this message has nothing to do with fishing, but everyone who visits here does so via the Internet, so this be useful to everyone here!

Updates:

Leaktest - minor update
NEW: Unplug and Pray - utility for most windows 98+ users to close security hole.
NEW: IDServe - Utility to identify Internet server software, includes reverse DNS lookup
NEW: SocketToMe and Socket lock for Windows XP users

There is a lot more info on the site about these and other utilities including quite detailed information about personal firewalls and other personal computer security issues.
