Re: A question about router security.
Though i disable it myself as i prefer to configure my own ports it is not as a big a deal as people make out, it is not commonly exploited and if it was it would be done through malware which you should be locally protected from anyways. There was a buffer exploit associated with XP however though that was a while ago. There was the Flash attack too but if you tightly controlled outboudn rules on your local machine again its not too much of an issue
