It's currently running on port 443.  I'm pretty sure that all the scans
I've seen so far are targeted at https webservers, and unlikely to be a
problem in this case.

Keeping on top of the security updates is, of course, still absolutely
essential.  The point is that the exposure to no-thought-required,
scripted exploits (which seems to cover the majority of cases) is
greatly reduced.  As always, YMMV.
