Hey Friends! After having a ton of issues with services from CenturyLink this week I decided I needed to reset my router that they provided me.

The router they have provided me is the Technicolor C2100T. This all relates to that particular device.

After resetting the router to it's default settings, I decided to take a look at the firewall settings. This is what I found:

Yeah, they have TONS of defined ports and protocols that are wide open to the world. Oh wait... what is that last one?

THEY LITERALLY OPEN EVERY SINGLE PORT ON THE DEVICE! Let me say that again... the CenturyLink Technicolor C2100T is a gaping huge hole into your home network. You can literally walk right past the router on ANY PORT.
