As I recall, one of the magazines a couple years back, actually had
some folks try to hack a 400... It was broken down into a group
of pc gurus, plus a group of 400 bubba's... Neither group made ANY
headway.... The system was secured using normal methods... They had
a local attached lan with a firewall... Most didn't even get through the 
firewall.. It's not impossible but I suspect, they would need a great
deal of "insider" help to really get to the system.... You don't get
goverment security rating(I forget the level) by having a "hackable" 
OS.... Most of the hacking that we read about is "urban myth" with a
little hand by the media... Now the "web" is somthing different

Has anybody "ever" had a intruder(other than an insider) get to their
system ???
