On the contrary....it is significantly better to be able to attack a 
system from a 10 (or even 100) Mb network connection, rather than over a 
<1Mb Internet connection....Portscans, DoS attacks are much more 
efficient on a local network...

That said, this is getting a little OT for this thread, and LFS support
