masquerading is as secure as you make firewalling.
if you're asking if there are any masquerading-specific security flaws, to
my knowledge, there are none.
the one thing that would help you is to read the ip-masquerading mini howto.
it'll explain exactly how to make sure that you're not allowing any services
to those who you do not mean to allow services (ie, outside hosts).

I have a lame-type question. I'm supposed to install potato on a
machine in my school. It will be supporting masqurade to allow other
computers to use internet connection. I'm asking You people, about
well known holes in system.
Thank You 4 Your time
