I'm concerned that Home Network Administration Protocol (HNAP) is a serious vulnerability that exposes consumer network routers to remote management by malicious entities such as government organisations and hostile corporate actors.

My question is twofold:

  1. Is it possible to disable HNAP on a D-Link ADSL router?
  2. Would you recommend it or not (please give reasons)?

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

for question 1 see D-Link documentation. For 2, it depends entirely on your needs, network, risk apettite, threats etc – Rory Alsop Dec 19 '15 at 1:16
