This may seem like a stupid question but if I have a firewall with snmp enabled what is stopping anyone from connecting an application like solarwinds up on their machine and retrieving the stats via snmp. I'm aware I can change the name public to something else. Thanks.

you change the readonly password as well as the readonly default snmp string

Edit:
I guess the string is the only thing you can change if you are going to use snmp.

I thought there were passwords on the strings too.
