Only a temporary one. What you do there is either:
a) Install a transparent one without him knowing. Use gloves and claim
to know nothing.
b) Make absolutely _sure_ he _has_ no protection against the RPC worm
and then "rescue" him by "suggesting" that a firewall would solve the
problem. Sleazy but it works.
Failing all that:
Time to move!
