Security Now 3

Security Now! Episode 3 is Live

I've posted Security Now! Episode 3.
Records live every Tuesday at 4:30pm Eastern / 1:30pm Pacific / 21:30 UTC.
In this edition Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte talk about the benefits of NAT routers.

If you're on a broadband connection:

  1. Use a router (even if it's not labeled a "firewall" it works as one)
  2. Change the default password
  3. Turn off WAN management
  4. Disable UPNP (universal plug 'n' play) and reset

Steve's recommended software firewalls: Kerio and Tiny.
