|If your running live cd, security is already tight as no one can modify it.aka: you don't need a firewall.|
They may not be able to modify it on the CD, but what is running..if it stays running and is corrupted, yes...it can happen, and yes a quick reboot will fix it, unless that person nailing you knows what he is doing and then its a pre-coded exploit...simple script breaks in...changes your running LiveCD on the fly and as long as it stays running the hack stays running (get the picture)
I really would recommend any/all linux have a stateful packet firewall like rc.firewall...incredibly simple and powerful at startup...and with a simple command you can turn it off..or edit the config and turn rc.firewall into a router, with DMZ and tons of other stuff (yes its that powerful too!)
