Malformed self-signed certificates, unsecured RMIs, telnet backdoors, trivial DoS by hitting high resource URLs, and a customer support team that will "pass your information on" and never call back. I threw out all of my managed Netgear equipment around 2010 because it was clear that Netgear should not be making network gear. Yeah, the products feel like they're decades of old code duct-taped together and maintained by short-term contractors.
