If you control your Belkin WeMo's locally like I do (Shell Script To Control Belkin WeMo’s - http://moderntoil.com/?p=839), the answer is as simple as a few firewall rules to stay safe. First, when I read this, I panicked and blocked all outgoing requests from the IP's of my WeMo's, then watched the firewall log to see what they were trying to do. Mine were pinging my LAN default gateway, trying to connect to "188.8.131.52:3478", and trying to connect to multiple IP's on UDP port 123. I adjusted my rules to allow them to hit the default gateway directly (but not NAT through it), since this is probably some check by the local OS on the WeMo's to see if the network is up. I also allowed them to hit anything on UDP 123 (NTP), since without the current time, they can be useless with a schedule. Looking at my logs now, all I see blocked is the constant requests to "184.108.40.206:3478". Local control resumed normally with these changes in place.
