Just one right now ...
As far as I can tell, you're not allowing SMB in this rule set. Are you
by chance using a wireless router, and connecting to it using a wireless
device, and having the shorewall box hanging off it too??
If that is the case, your wireless devices actually may not be covered
by your firewall, and that's what people are getting to .. All depends
on how you have connected up everything.
This is hopefully not the case, but thought I'd throw it into the mix ..
