Re: The only workaround is to disable remote administration.

"this and other stories like it are why i am less and less sorry for paying for a commercial grade firewall and security appliance for my home network"

Indeed, while primarily a learning exercise, I have setup a decent smart switch, router and a few subnets isolating wireless, wired and untrusted devices, squid + iptables restrict access to the router.

Although I'm not entirely sure this qualifies as a "home" network anymore, despite its location.
