I am pretty sure the Verizon routers are immune to this, but it's worth checking. I think this is the reason they hid the option.
The bug is that UPnP is unnecessarily exposed on the WAN
side of the router, when it only really makes sense on the
LAN side. Hopefully the Actiontec doesn't have this issue,
but curious as many routers have this flaw. It should never
be available for negotiate on the WAN side, but it is on
many routers. Hope this isn't an issue with the ActionTec,
but if it is on any model, please report! Verizon will want
to know that. Hopefully not...
Here are the details about it:
There is an entire TechGuy Podcast about it would explains
the flaw. But a quick explaination can be found here:
