    I am running os 10.1.3 and wanted to know how secrue my system was... I am not an experienced web server adminstrator... just a web designer who doesn't want his site hacked.

    I have installed all the updates.

    I have a static IP

    I allow Web Sharing and File Sharing

    I do not allow FTP / SSL / remote Apple Events

    I have enabled PHP and have installed mysql

    I do not have a firewall running

    How secure is my system. Can you recomend a good firewall program. Is it safe it enable SSH?

    What do I need to do to insure my system doesn't get hacked.
