I am considering enabling my iMac to respond to an incoming connection from “Screens” when I’m out and about. It sounds really convenient to have access to my Mac from anywhere.
However, I am kinda worried about the security aspect here. I will need to set up a port to accept ALL connections from the wild, just in case it’s me. Software routinely ship with bugs, some of them serious, some of them not even identified, potentially leaving my machine open to attacks (not that I’m a target for my content, I’m thinking more of crypto-miners and ransom-ware and botnet-minions). The port scanners will have my IP/port-number in a matter of hours from enabling it.
Talking myself out of it as I type, but am I too paranoid on this? Curious to hear how others are managing this type of service.
