vulnerabilities of such systems. By extension, this then requires that the best possible firewall software and router systems be in place in order to assure protection from information being hijacked,
unwanted information being sent forward, and the possibility that an individual computer or network of computers could be irreparably damaged. Simply put, firewalls are computer network devices that protect a
network from other "less trusted" networks. In addition, it is important to understand that one "fix" never solves a problem once and for all. Just as computer technology becomes more
advances so do the skills and technologies of those intent on breaking into somebody elses system. The most recent concern, according Karpinski (2002) is that "firewall and routing platforms
lack the ability to intelligently process XML content" but he goes on to explain that: "Not surprisingly, a new class of technology and products has risen up to fill this
void" (pp. NA). It is clearly not enough to have the newest technology to use. One also has to have the newest technology that protects what it is that is
