Re: Turn off uPNP

Maybe some of that much-vaunted "machine learning" could be applied to some OCR so that your camera can read the security rules off a piece of paper and reprogram your firewall. It could be like... the 90's!

Don't suggest the use of QR-codes! The vendors will omit the obvious security checks and validation and simply do whatever the QR-code tells it to do. There was an article a while back on El Reg about the (mis)use of QR-codes containing URL's on posters to get unsuspecting people to download malware to their smartphones.
