Really? Isn't established,related enough for the majority of uses?
Given firewald's integration and ability to do on-the-fly firewall rules
you would think you could just enable specific use cases at user request
(or even at app launch).
What use case were they coming up with needing all ports inbound open?
Leaving it wide open on an untrusted network leaves a huge hole for
possible exploit. I'm thinking users setting up default DB instances,
all sorts of software with possible elevated privs might bind to high
ports by default.
