Which is a fixed bug, and will be closed in the next release.  It's not
rocket science to fix this yourself now if it worries you, which will
make it zero open sockets on a N800.

Yes, someone should make an iptables package for the people who are
running services on their N800.  However the stock image has no services
so doesn't really need a firewall.
