@Rory this was satisfactory for my boss, and we used these suggested high-level reviews to check Firefox. My boss then gave the order to deploy Firefox to all systems, so thanks for some high-level pointers!

@valentinas yeah, that was my thought re: Firefox. I was told to get it reviewed, but I'm fairly certain it can be deployed without any real security concerns.

@valentinas the sys admin got canned and we're on our own, and a lot of our required utilities depend on the latest Firefox. the sys admin was the only one who knew the security review stuff. we're kinda stuck until a new person comes in. :/

comment How does a firewall help to protect a server?
This question should be revised. It should probably read "How does a firewall help to protect a server". rather than asking specifics about the misconception that a firewall will truly protect everything. (A firewall is just one part of a working IT security solution)

comment Can most mail from *.ru be considered spam?
And that's the percentage I'm trying to find. It is pretty apparent that most of the mail coming from *.ru is spam (i run 6 sites, and russian spam keeps going to admin@[domain]).

comment Can most mail from *.ru be considered spam?
Then, if the mail server logs and reports show that all (19999 out of 20000) messages from *.ru are spam, would you personally say that in the specific case of that report and those mailservers, it may be prudent to block *.ru? Global trends, of course would seem to suggest otherwise, but in this specific case, I'm inclined to suggest blacklisting *.ru.
