In addition to the regular updates you make to the box, there are
things you can do, to "harden" the security. That will make it tougher
for someone to hack. You can begin with the manual you can download
from nsa.gov or other documentation. However, please do not believe
that you can make the box impossible to hack. A hardened box will
discourage the majority of hackers and they will go elsewhere. GL
