I just came upon this ubuntuforum thread about setting up a proper firewall. It explains the howto but most importantly the whydo. I was under the impression that if you set up iptables with "default deny" you're ok. wrong.
Outgoing rules should be "default deny" too. After making this rule of course I should make exceptions because I won't be able to connect to other machines. What are these exceptions?
2.http and https
4.email (in my case email over SSL)
List of Ports here.
