This Netgear SOHO switch has 15 – count 'em! – vulns, which means you need to upgrade the firmware... now

"Up to date" in finger quotes

"Up to date" for consumer / SOHO routers just means "the latest thing the vendor bothered to release." Many of these vendors use ancient (as in 10+ years old) libraries as part of their so-called current firmware. Link is about a TP-Link Archer because it was a good write-up, but Netgear has been shown to use similarly antique Linux bits.
