In this edition Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte talk about the benefits of NAT routers.
If you're on a broadband connection:
- Use a router (even if it's not labeled a "firewall" it works as one)
- Change the default password
- Turn off WAN management
- Disable UPNP (universal plug 'n' play) and reset
