<question>True or False? A firewall protects networked computers from intentional hostile intrusion that could compromise confidentiality or result in data corruption or denial of service. It may be a hardware device or a software program running on a secure host computer. Hardware Firewall is easy to penetrate as compared to Software basic Firewall. </question>
True. A hardware firewall is a small metal box filled with plug openings, or ports. You hook your computer network into the box then set it up on your computer, Hardware firewall offer better performance than software version.
The first 2 sentences are correct. But I disagree with the third question that hardware firewall is easier to penetrate compared to software. Moreover, the reason that "Hardware firewall offer better performance than software version." doesn't have to do anything with penetration ease. So, if 2 sentences are correct and one is incorrect, than the overall answer should be false.
1. Is it a typo mistake in the selection of the answer?
2. Do they really mean that hardware firewall is easier to penetrate? If yes, what would be the reason.
3. Am I missing something?
Any input into this topic to shed some light will be highly appreciated.
