    typo in ufw wiki page ?

    I didn't find a suitable place to post this,so I apologize in advance if this is the wrong section,however I think there may be a typo in this wiki page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW ,as the highlighted lines don't make much sense as they are,is it possible that the first one should actually read "remove or edit" and the "or" removed form the second line?


    Enable PING

    Note: Security by obscurity may be of very little actual benefit with modern cracker scripts. By default, UFW allows ping requests. You may find you wish to leave (icmp) ping requests enabled to diagnose networking problems.
    You need to edit /etc/ufw/before.rules and remove edit the following lines:

    # ok icmp codes -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type destination-unreachable -j ACCEPT -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type source-quench -j ACCEPT -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type time-exceeded -j ACCEPT -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type parameter-problem -j ACCEPT -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j ACCEPT

    Change the "ACCEPT" to "DROP" or

    # ok icmp codes -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type destination-unreachable -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type source-quench -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type time-exceeded -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type parameter-problem -j DROP -A ufw-before-input -p icmp --icmp-type echo-request -j DROP

    If you have a launchpad account, you can correct the errors yourself. If you don't have an account, you can create one here

    The wiki administrators, will be notified of your edits. There is also peer review, if someone finds something that isn't right, or full of the wrong information, it will be noted and corrected.
