Start by downloading and installing the latest Solaris 8 recommended
patch cluster from www.sun.com.  Then read the document on securing
Solaris found at http://fixsolaris.sunhelp.org/fixsolaris8.txt and apply
it.  That'll be a good start.  If you're not already behind a firewall,
consider installing one.
