BOY: I know a lot of people suffering from NIMDA and KLEZ. My firewall apparently stops NIMDA, but as I remarked last week, I get a KLEZ-infested email almost every time I check mail. Is this cyberwar? It certainly seems worse than I’ve ever seen.

Question: I’m about to install the home network. Will my Linksys WAP-11 be sufficient firewalling, or should I put Norton on each computer?

UPDATE: Hey, thanks for all the advice in the comments section (er, except for Richard Bennett’s comments about my daughter. Jeez.) and by email.
