8. How secure is a Cable Modem?
Cable connections are not 100% secure in any instance like many other connections on the Internet. Even though most cable providers block ports 137-139, cable modems are likely to be generated in any case where a user has file and print sharing turned on, or possibly other services like SMTP (Simple mail transfer protocol), Web Servers and Telnet services. A general rule is to keep passwords long and turn off any service that you don't absolutely need running. A firewall type application should be used to keep a network as secure as possible.
