Java is revealing my Private IP (router IP) to Internet
Hi, first post here, this is a question about networking security in java.
Few days ago I installed a wireless D-Link DIR-600 router with my main machine connected via cable to it.
It works great, it have a built-in firewall with Statefull Packet Inspection with WEP,WPA,WPA2 and so on.
However, I was a bit curious about what AuditMyPC.com and other security-test sites would say so I did a security scan and found that, behind my visible internet IP, the local private IP was being broadcasted to the internet thru, AuditMyPC.com says, a bug in Java.
I know this isn't exactly a very great problem, being my computer another one home machine connected to the net, not a corporate one, and having local firewall running in my Linux box, but I would like to know if there's any way to just cloack the private IP or better stop broadcasting it.
Any suggestion welcomed, thanks :)
