there is another way... governmental recall of the devices

if you have a BitDropper 666 modem, or webcam, or baby monitor, or whatever that is known vulnerable, the FTC could order a recall. industry would wake up pretty quick if all their DVRs and Smart TVs were forced to be recalled and refunded because the software was shit full of holes.
