*** This bug is a security vulnerability ***

You have been subscribed to a public security bug by Seth Arnold (seth-arnold):

UFW or iptables is disabled by default on both ubuntu server and
desktop, which poses a major security risk as ports that shouldn't be
open, are open by default, specially for incoming connections.

If UFW breaks working apps on Ubuntu server and desktop, at least make
it enabled by default but reject all incoming connections.

Malware and exploits are out in the open, and no one in their sane mind
would a Firewall suit disabled on Linux or Windows.

** Affects: ufw (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
         Status: New

UFW Disabled by default
