It is hard enough to live with the managed internet servers that hackers turn into zombies to rage living hell on the internet community. It takes too long as it is for people to do something about an out of control server that has been taken over and used to attack other computers across the world. And that is at a place that keep staff on hand 24/7 to take care of such situations.
On the home computer side and all the botnets that are swarming around the internet attacking people on a day to day basis…… I don’t even want to go there.
Think of what a hacker could do with a bunch of mini servers that don’t have a direct interface or any other way to keep an eye on the code that it is running, or to notice strange thing happening when the code is running.
Put those servers in the hands of people that won’t even be checking on them if they did have a direct interface to use.
And throw that on top of the fact that they will be home servers with no easy way for outsiders to contact the owner to correct problems.
If a bunch of hackers did find a vulnerability that allowed them to put code on it with out affecting the normal intended operation that the owner is using it for. Then all heck will break loose. It’s a bad idea, plain and simple, a bad idea.
