|I recently purchased a box with an ABIT motherboard
|and an Athlon 3200+ processor running Fedora2 on a
|cable modem. I installed my own firewall from
|netfilter.org using iptables. I am a bit of a newbie.
|I have used RH update and YUM and recently took a look
|at my tables and they have been changed cosiderably in
|several places to include:
|Chain INPUT
|RH-Firewall-1-INPUT Policy accept all anywhere
|Chain FORWARD Policy accept
|RH-Firewall-1-FORWARD accept all anywhere anywhere
|Chain RH-Firewall-1-INPUT accept all anywhere anywhere
|ACCEPT all anywhere aywhere
|ACCEPT icmp all anywhere anywhere
|ACCEPT IPV6-crypt anywhere anywhere
|ACCEPT IPV6-AUTH anywhere anywhere
|and more too numerous to write
|Is this the result of using YUM and or Redhat up2date
|or has someone been in my box?
|I would sure appreciate any feedback about this that
|someone on staff may be able to answer.

Either someone has been in your box, or you really don't understand
setting up iptables.
This is a wide open system that poses a security risk.  Please fix
this ASAP and start searching for who setup this.

Sorry, If I'm a bit harsh.

PS: Change your root password ASAP as well.
