On the console password issue, I agree with Manuel. If someone has access to 
your firewall to do bad things, you have bigger problems. Also it's not like 
the user thru the serial interface can change rules. All they can do is 
add/delete interfaces and change IP's. If you want to disrupt service, just 
unplug it.

Not something a "hacker" would be too interested in anyway.

Rule change would be the badguys biggest thing. Any sys admin worth his/her 
salary would certainly notice the addition of an interface.
