And of course it should be clearly indicated that the service is >available to the public; but *that* is what CVE-2011-1164 is for. It should be noted that the UPnP feature is disabled by default, so the user has the option to *enable* it. I concede that the string presented in the UI needs improvement. Of course, I agree that indication of the consequences would be appropriate, and also disallowing the 'none' authentication method if UPnP is enabled. -- http://amigadave.com/
