Oh, I don't know if that's a new feature. I recall getting a DSL modem
and getting instructions to bring up Internet Explorer after the
ethernet cable had been connected to my computer.
Well, I don't normally use Windows, but I have a couple of systems with
XP installed, so I dragged them out and plugged in the modem. I brought
up IE8 without keying in a URL and viewed the display "Configuring your
modem" was the message along with the pretty colors of the modem sender.
Holy cow! It didn't even ask if I wanted to point the browser at the
configuration page. Shades of COFEE. Does anyone else think that this
is a great feature and not a security hole?
