RFE: use NIS/portmap with firewalling

Red Hat Linux Security Guide 8.0.93
Page 38ff (5.3. Securing NIS)
Add a note: Because NIS is inherently insecure, only use it in conjunction
with firewalling (same for portmap etc.).
I will see about adding this for the surrent release.
Thanks for the feedback.
I added a note for the next release.
Thanks for the suggestion.
