    Why store plaintext? Because they reuse the same web portal credentials for the actual modem connection, and can't figure out instead generating signed key pairs while shipping the hardware...

    Not that it matters, the routers probably have hardcoded backdoors, both in the home and the backbone network, because Cisco got caught with yet another one...

    Oh and every US phones' location was being leaked by some data broker.
    I often use rude words for secure stuff. I had a giggle from the rep when I rang experian after I forgot my password and he pulled up my memorable phrase. I just assumed he could see it all when he asked for the 2nd and 7th characters.

    It affects modern out-of-order execution processor cores from Intel, AMD, and Arm, as well as IBM's Power 8, Power 9, and System z CPUs. Bear in mind, Arm cores are used the world over in smartphones, tablets, and embedded electronics.

    The fourth variant can be potentially exploited by script files running within a program such as JavaScript on a webpage in a browser tab to lift sensitive information out of other parts of the application such as personal details from another tab.

    Honestly at this point in time I think banning JavaScript is easier than patching all the world chips out there.
