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

Yeah. These things are commodities now, margins are razor-thin, and software is easy to skimp on.

I think the open-source firmware projects are the only way to go now. Pity it's such a pain figuring out what product to actually purchase in order to have a decent chance of getting something running, since the hardware vendors change what's in the box so often.
