It look like a stateless packet filter which is not very usefull. If it was aware of conection states you could deny all incomming connections and be pretty save. Now you have to allow incomming packets to all ports except the server ports. The best way to set this up would be to block all outgoing packets except to http and ftp. That way the return packets of a attack will be blocked and you still have only a few rules.
