You a word there.

I think you meant Windows does the same thing? Indeed, netsh is used to manage firewall rules on the command line level, and the Windows firewall snapin uses netsh. There are 3rd-party programs that replace the snapin or make it more intuitive like wfc from BiniSoft. I'm not sure if it replaces the regular snapin or runs on top of it.

Exactly this. It's just like PKI is sound but the security of a system comes down to its implementation. Unless these Bitcoin exchanges are audited or have best practices put in place one could never know who the next victim of these hacks would be and therefore a person's wallet would always be in jeopardy. If I were to have a Bitcoin wallet, I would have used Mt. Gox since they're the biggest, oldest, and original founding member of the Bitcoin Foundation. Little did everyone know they could come down so soon.

I'm not against Bitcoin but it's much too soon to start relying on it as a stable currency.
