I remember in IRC a long while back, some guys were talking about some dude that tried to be leet and was saying he had like 5 firewalls so if you got past the first one, you still had the rest of them. Now obviously it isn't like a real wall where you have them in an order, but i was thinking...if you exploit a vulnerability in some dudes firewall, and you can get in, what if he had a second one. So it would still be blocked, but not by as many. I don't know, just wondering.

Well if it's a series of hardware routers, then it would be like a real wall where you have them in an order. But five firewalls is definitely overkill, not to mention the fact that it would slow stuff down quite a bit.

maybe two firewalls would be hard to hack (as in once the first one, passed, u got the second one) but you'd have to put different OS, or diff firewall and config b/c if it's the exact same (ie: two NT boxes, filterning the exact same traffic (same rules)) then if u hack the first one, you can hack the second.

So globally I believe more than one firewall/router DOES have a use, but u have to set it up "inteligent-ly"
something most admins tend to forget

*ahem* some admins tend to forget. Contrary to the hacker perspective, admins are not idiots.
