And that is pure FUD. The sorts of security risks with IPv6 are mostly in
the same sorts of categories as those with IPv4 and have appropriate
mitigations available. Moreover, by not enabling and controlling IPv6 on
their networks, an operator is actually markedly more vulnerable to IPv6
attacks, not less.
