I was wondering if it had ever been done...i thought our network was pretty secure with a pix sitting at the entrance, but somebody told me there would still be ways to hack in. How?

Only by you not having appropriate security set on the device or by giving the password details to somebody that you shouldn't. By this I mean a loose tongue, not having suitable passwords to gain access to the pix and a different enable password etc. To my knowledge (happy to be corrected if someone knows more) a PIX has never been 'hacked' from the cold...
