> It's just ASUS are extremely incompetent with anything software related, not just security.

Hardware companies are extremely incompetent at anything software related, we see this in everything from PC's and phones (touchwizz, htc sense) right down to TV's and various IoT devices. I can't imagine what the PC industry would like like if luck hadn't delivered us an open platform.

yes, free software and open-source did wonders and I am so thankful for all the devs who made it possible, thank you!

On the other hand, there is a growing number of insecure and closed IoT garbage devices. It will be common to see a wifi attack coming from a breached water kettle.
