      It will be fine/secure on its default setting

      The reality is you are millions of times more likely to get hit by problems from stuff you download on your computer yourself than from any hacking attempt from any one with a scanner even if you have no security on your wireless at all (in which case the most likely thing that would happen is someone might steal some of your internet service).
