Saftey of remote access

With 1.4 out and apparently working very pimpy I can now afford to be very serious about my servers operation. One thing I would like to do is run a remote util, like from BlackBagOps, to control high latency users and what have you. I do have hesitations about leaving the remote access port for the server open. Near as I can tell it's insecure and I remember reading a sec posting somewhere, granted it was for an older version, where the remote admin port could be used to DOS the machine. What's the lists opinion/feelings regarding it's use. Do you guys feel safe with it? Am I being paranoid or justly cautious?
