Default UPnP-enabled routers allow attacks on LANs

From http://h-online.com/-1329727

Quote:
Routers from various manufacturers support UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) on their WAN interfaces, which apparently makes it possible for attackers to reconfigure them remotely via the internet and, for example, misuse them as surfing proxies or to infiltrate internal LANs. The problem was discovered by IT security specialist Daniel Garcia, who has developed the Umap tool to demonstrate the problem; the tool is available to download free of charge.

I think the security problems associated with UPnP have been known about for years, at least by the people who wouldn't touch it with a 30 foot pole.
