Maybe we're getting to the point where consumer level (oh hell and why not enterprise level) firewalls/routers need to have advertised expiry dates. Not only on the boxes but on the devices as well. Like a date up to which the manufacturer promises to keep releasing security updates.
My children's car seats have these for their protection. Why shouldn't our home networks also have this sort of protection?
And then at the same time there might be more realization from consumers that they need to remember to upgrade these on a regular basis.
@deutrino @devrandom I've resolved to never buy proprietary routers again. All devices I now consider are relatively standard computers that can run non proprietary OSes like a Linux distro or OPNSense. Something like this
I'm finished with mystery meat firmware and trusting reverse engineered OpenWRT ports not supported by the vendors are reliable and secure.
