Is it safe to enable UPnP on my router?


Recommended Posts

I am at home not an office and am using a D-Link, and everything works great. I currently have it set for UPnP enabled because I use the random port forward in uTorrent. However I recently read that there are some holes that can be exploited when you set your router to enable UPnP. Is this accurate? And I found a note by you, Switeck, on this board that says, "Due to Belkin and D-Link router limitations, we highly recommend you do not use UPnP, DHT, or more than 100 connections at once." I don't use DHT at all, but do use UPnP and have my connections at the default 100 and everything works well. I really just want to know if there is a security problem with UPnP?
