1394 Connection a Security Risk?

Is the 1394 Connection (Firewire Card) Net adapter a security risk while enabled? Its listed as a Connected Network Connection. Does anyone know if this is a security risk that should be disabled when not using firewire, or does it pose no risk and can be safely ignored? Thanks, any input appreciate...

I'll admit, the embassy call was unexpected, but thats what C2C does, it breaks news first! The embassy is not Paranormal in nature, but George's show reaches millions, and C2C broke the story even before it appeared on CNN, so naturally George tried to reach the Embassy in an attempt to "Get the tr...

Its definitely not Alex. I listen to Alex regularly and although I'll admit it sounds a little like him, after listening to the call closely a couple times I have to say its definitely not him.

The cache on one of my crunchers will be touch and go, but I might be o.k. if they can get Seti back up early monday morning. If not, then maybe I'll give my machines a well desearved break rather then switch projects.

We'll see...
