> Do you say that Ethernet cards may have backdoors built in,
Yes. I read a report years ago that at least one model of Ethernet
card had a remote âfirmware upgradeâ âfeatureâ built in, with
absolutely no authentication of the new firmware blob. The card
firmware had access to the host's DMA hardware, which can be used to
root the host.

Only if you trust the hardware firewall/router. I wouldn't.
