TCP Split Handshake Issue

FIREWALL2Image via WikipediaTCP Split Handshake Issue

those days I’ve read on the news a lot of noise about an NSS test that were reporting a TCP handshake security hole (TCP Split Handshake Issue) in several commercial firewalls.

The question is interesting from several points of view:
are IPS and firewall really secure?

is a vulnerability really a security issue?

how does this vulnerability affect me?
