Here’s the thing I don’t get… You have X provider supplying routers with vulnerable firmware that have remote support (TR-069) enabled.
Why would Check Point not at least name and shame, instead of trying to market their security? I know the hack is old, but grandma isn’t probably up to date on the latest firmware that should have been upgrade through TR-069. I’m honestly more upset with the reporting than the normal residential cpe didn’t get upgraded.
But yeah, Happy Holidays everyone...
