Urgent Help Required

Well I finally got my smoothwall box up and running.. I checked my ports and things seemed ok

The problem i have is that i was online when a new window opened, the site it took me to was

Its all in german, as i looked at the site i saw that my IP address and view of my hard drive was on the site ????

Im really confussed.. the site got my IP address and the contents of my hard drive. I clicked on some of my files and I could delete, edit and even copy them...

What happened 2 my computer ??? What was the firewall doing ???

Please vist the site and tell me what u think..

If you can tell me whats going on I would appreciate it..

Well that has nothing to do with your firewall. It's just one of those many known vulnerabilities in IExplorer. As far as I could read the german on that site they don't do anything with the data besides showing you that it's possible. They use an IFrame for that which is very specific code for MSIE. You might want to read the following article;EN-US;q243638

Well substitute the $ in the link because this site doesn't seem to like the word.
