FTTP good, TG852n open to FTP from Internet!

I've finally got FTTP up, and after a router reboot, have it all running at a nice speed.  Overall good, but I thought I'd point out that the Technicolor router I was supplied for the FTTP trial was setup so that its FTP server was facing the Internet by default - not good, especially if you've changed the admin password to something more trivial than the factory supplied one  Shocked
This was easily seen by checking with an online service (e.g. https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2) or nmap from a machine on the Internet. 
Finding and "unassigning" the FTP application via the router config webpages fixes that at least, but it's a surprising default config.
