code to bypass firewall xp sp2

Mitch Denny has written some sample code that lets developers  more easily interact with the new firewall design that is part of Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). Denny said that his code, FirewallPermission, "is a custom permission and associated declaritive security attribute which uses the Windows Firewall COM interfaces to check whether a program has inbound access on a port enabled." http://notgartner.com/Downloads/Firewall_1.0.0.0.zip
 
and a comment 'the whole point of a true firewall is that it requires the USER to authenticate the program. From what I can tell from the description of this code, it allows an application to bypass that layer of security by authenticating *itself* (and/or *other* applications) to open a port through the firewall'  http://www.winnetmag.com/Article/ArticleID/43096/43096.html
