Just a reminder of how easily your stuff can be stolen.

I have two Qnap NAS devices at home (one is a mirror to the other). They both have complex passwords and usernames and sit behind an enterprise class firewall made by Cisco. Every port is closed...ICMP requests are ignored. I monitor the syslog religiously. I have a 63 character key for wireless access and your MAC address has to be in the router before you can gain access which runs WPA2 with TKIP+AES...slow, but secure. There is no SSID broadcast. The only way in is to hook directly into the switch.

I was in the IT industry for a number of years. Availability and security was something of great importance to the companies I worked for. It should be no different at home.

Ive never been hacked. I have servers that have been online for 10 years 24/7. apache, php, mysql, freebsd. got some malware before, surfing, but not more personal than that.

just got to follow the basics. Keep things up to date and know how to watch it. if you dont need it, dont enable it, etc

Monitor the syslog, 63 character key for wireless access, MAC filtering, WPA2 with TKIP+AES...slow to get going, SSID not broadcast.
Pretty standard for me also.
I work on a fair bit of security related crap like cameras and DVRs.
Most people do not change the basic log on and address and then connect it to the internet.
They change their own log on only.
You can Google find CCTV and DVR address to get a lot of basic factory info and then go searching around.
Used to be you had to use their software but now it is all Browser based.
Like people in a crowd talking you don't really hear individuals.
You hear one if your name is said or the info is interesting.
Same for security. For a regular boring user most likely no one will ever do more than a drive by on your puter or cordless phone or whatever.
If they think there is a reason to go further they might if they can find you.
To block the vast majority of people just keep it locked up, keeping SSID off is a good way.
If they have reason to want in and are hackers they will get in no matter what you do.
So unless you are a bank or the Government or some crap then just use normal precautions but do use precautions.
Read the manual to see what you can do, use the interwebz to see what you can do.

More scaremongering, hackers and the like do NOT really bother with home users and this film is mis-leading, they interview people on the street then tell us how a company document was found.

Be secure but don't be unnecessarily scared by bad reporting.

Hmm, think I'll drive around tonight and see who forgot to set their garage door codes. :D
