Too true. However, when a company president gets upset because
his kid couldn't play Quake over the network, ports magically
begin to open...
FWIW, it might be good to clarify the "stateful" remark a bit:
Keeping state on all outbound traffic could cause a problem.
deny udp from any 1434 to any 1434
allow udp from any 1434 to any keep-state
deny udp from any to any 1434
works nicely for blocking the worm.
