+ - OS X "Leopard" firewall gets very poor rev

"The Mac OS X Leopard firewall failed every test. It is not activated by default and, even when activated, it does not behave as expected. Network connections to non-authorized services can still be established and even under the most restrictive setting, "Block all incoming connections," it allows access to system services from the internet.""

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
