Re: Common Router Security Flaw - You Want to Check This!

I ran this test last night with UPnP both off and on... both times it said I was not vulnerable, so it seems that the Rev I router with the latest firmware has UPnP set up properly, with no visibility on the WAN side.

For the record, I leave UPnP off anyway.

This has nothing to do with the LAN UPnP setting in the router. It's a bug, not a setting, that opens WAN UPnP to the outside world in some routers.

(EDIT TO CORRECT: Yes, turning LAN UPnP off will apparently disable the WAN bug if you have it - didn't mean to leave the impression it wouldn't)
