Hello Everyone: I am trying to settle a discussion with a friend! If a person is on a (so called) Secure Website but has NO Firewall. is that person more prone to have his or her information stolen by a hacker? Thanks, Tom

Anytime you are on the internet and you have no firewall in place you are inviting someone to get information from you.

Thats what I told him, my brother just got a computer and did not have a firewall in place and was on a secure site at AOL and someone stoles all the information and some how started a credit card up and charged 2000 dollars on a phony account with my brothers name on it.
