This seems like the perfect product for me to geek out on over the summer, but I have some security questions:
Bluetooth - what are the security arrangements for adding bluetooth devices? What prevents my next door neighbor from accessing my system? How are devices added?
Core Security - if the LinuxMCE Core acts as the DHCP server/firewall and is connected directly to your cable modem, how secure is it? I mean you're potentially putting a device that monitors your security video, makes calls, has access to every computer on the LAN and controls your house hold appliances right smack next to the internet. If a hacker owns this box, it'd be a nightmare. They could make it seem like your house was possessed (Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice)! I'm too paranoid to not have a router or security gateway between the LinuxMCE and the internet.
Thanks in advance.
