 It depends on what level of security is required. I don't have one of these boxes, but it is legitimate to identify possible weak points.
Volatile file systems are one of those. The original box had no issues on that front. Embedded systems such as linux with flash memory do.
I have just had a Soekris FreeBSD NTP server go feet up due to file system corruption caused by a power failure. It is no great deal to create a new system, but I hadn't made a drop duplicate flash card so it will take some time. So one NTP server is down for a day. If a proud owner of one of these great boards doesn't care about that sort of issue, then OK, else one of the suggestions imposes.
