    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.
