I have UPnP turned on as well and I passed.
About a year or so ago I got hacked, my own fault for forgetting to set a name and password for my new router

I have to have UPnP turned on so as to run my webcam devices I use which has to keep a port open all the time to work. But my configuration passwords on the router were changed from the usual default USERNAME/PASSWORD, admin/admin the day it was installed as a matter of course. As for the wireless function of the router, that's switched off as all the machines in the house are hard-wired into the Ethernet Network, much more stable, a lot faster and impossible for someone like neighbours or mobile phone users to try and piggyback.
The flaw doesn't affect all routers, mine passes with UPnP enabled. But unless you run the test you can't know for sure if your network is safe.
I ran the test. My router is also safe but I ned to wash my hair and the cat has crapped in the litter tray..
I too ran the test. Safe, apart from the high horse content of the burger I ate 2 hours ago
