The details of my home network were intended to illustrate that even for those who are careful, the addition of an authenticator is not a bad idea. Total system security as it applies to protecting your WoW account is not irrelevant."No amount of authenticators are going to stop people from falling for web scams. Wow, their WoW account is safe; too bad nothing else on their machine is anymore, thanks to downloading and opening that attachment from their friend's email address in that email that said friend would never write." The irrelevancy is in your implied argument that a user should not bother protecting their WoW account by any means available, simply because other things on their computer are compromised. Yes, people will continue to fall victim to web scams. However, an authenticator will help prevent the compromise of their WoW account.I would never call a Juniper SSG appliance a router. It's an unified threat management appliance which has routing functions. I would never ask a Cisco router (2600, 3600, etc), Juniper J-series or any other dedicated routing platform to handle security functions. IOS and JUNOS are not firewall releases. PIX OS and ScreenOS are.
