please can I get a view/opinions on how secure my setup is. I basically want to run python's SimpleHttpServer to expose one directory over the internet.
I'm running debian squeeze with all the latest security updates.
I've got my router port forwarding only for ssh and 8000.
For ssh I use shared keys.
I use fail2ban to prevent repeated ssh attempts.
Using ufw I've only enabled access for the ports for ssh and port 8000.
Some of the above isn't relevant for port 8000, but do you think it's okay for me to expose a folder for any amount of time to the world using python's SimpleHttpServer for file download?
Thank you in advance.
