Browsing External Storage Devices - Split Tunnel

I found that if I set up my split tunnel to allow explorer.exe, I can now access files on my external Network Storage Device (NAS). I'm curious though that if I do that, do I actually expose my file storage to any risks?

Thanks

Re: Browsing External Storage Devices - Split Tunnel

Hello Michael. This linked Norton article below, suggests, that split-tunneling apps are still safe and secure. It DOES, exclude those apps from passing through the VPN. Allowing full network access to Explorer is risky at best. There are other ways to allow access to your NAS that are far safer. Specifically through Norton's firewall settings and your router settings. That will isolate your system from outside interference. The larger issue with using an NAS is that "outside" access, away from your local network, requires port forwarding AND UPNP to be enabled. I personally find that dangerous, as its a possible avenue into you local network. Vendors are also not notorious about keeping up with vulnerabilities in their software which further complicates things. 

The Split Tunnel feature in Norton Secure VPN lets you securely direct and encrypt your choice of apps by selecting the traffic you wish to exclude from Secure VPN
