But a rogue web server would know the address and run an attack on

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.

Assuming a correctly configured firewall, ditto.

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?

They're assigned locally by the machine.
