Does anyone have a practical justifications for using a firewall for RISC OS in the first place? Apart from the four or five people that are really at risk, has there been anybody who really would think about wanting to write malicious software to attack RISC OS computer in the past five years?

The only malicious peice of software I came across was off the Archimedes World floppy disk and I've never had a problem since - in fact my own programming represents more of a threat than any outside challenge :)
