Popular 3G/4G data dongles are desperately vulnerable, say hackers

Well, but changing firmware from the user side is a feature...

...not a bug. Not being able to change the firmware myself would be a bug as it would keep me from updating/modifying my firmware as I wish.

An actual bug would be if the operator/manufacturer could change the firmware without my consent... unfortunately the operators and manufacturers have a different view on this.
