But a rogue web server would know the address and run an attack on it.
Also, we can find the IP on mails.

Well, whether you use NAT or just a firewall, the attack will still be
the same.

No, with NAT there is no possibility of directly connecting to the hosts
inside, unless the router sends some ports inside, to a server inside.
Or game.

Also, as I mentioned in another note, privacy addresses are
usually used. These addresses have a fairly short lifetime, so are
useless long term for attacks.

Well, that's good.

How does that work? The router hands them, or the computer autoassigns them?
