Yes, it seems to be pretty evil. Further reading: "UPnP security in  
Internet gateway devices" [1].

Nonetheless I'd like to ask a question related to uPnP: Is it possible  
to access a uPnP streaming server on the DMZ interface from a hardware  
media player located behind the LAN interface?
Of course I'd prefer a standard CIFS/NFS share mountable in the media  
player, but it seems as uPnP is quite common in audio/video streaming.
