So in order to get attacked and get the torrc file modified, you first
have to get infected by a worm, virus, malware or trojan horse that
communicates with localhost:9051?|
There is no way that someone could directly attack me through port 9051 behind a physical firewall? Is this correct?
If this is correct, then the chance of getting attacked behind a physical firewall is very low, right?

Please describe how someone can reach port 9051 behind a firewall.port 9051 is usually bound to localhost (127.0.0.1). a firewall (usually) protects against external connections. applications / utilities bound to localhost can access other ports bound to this address. best regards,
