Our server and a bunch of others at our hosting provider have been very recently used for an outbound DOS network attack.
We're trying to figure out everything we can do to protect ourselves in the future. We now have anti-virus software running and are going to be more vigilant about installing MS critical update patches.
We've been told we should install some Firewall software and maybe even an IDS.
Can you recommend a very user-friendly firewall software package for a Win2K Web server?
Would you also recommend we install an IDS?
