Security-wise it is also a nightmare. There is so much stuff running  
in the container that I have no idea of. I usually bind the instance  
to localhost and do port translation for those TCP/IP services that  
need to be exposed, but even then there are still many ways to  
connect to it from localhost that could potentially expose  
information or give control to unauthorized people.
