And memory protection did not protect the site.
A good firewall (perhaps) would have.
And guess what : Amigas also can run firewall software.

This is true even for memory protected systems. Again, when code is allowed to run, it's too late.

... apart that if malicious code runs on a miggy then it's noticed a lot faster.

Security is hard because systems are too complex.
Btw. do you have a gun at home to limit the malicious damage, should someone enter anyway ?
