At the risk of creating another flame war, I remember a thread a while back where the proliferation of linux on network/routing devices was touted as an example of linux's superiority. I wonder what the linux fanboys have to say about this? From the article it seems like their perfect world is crashing down around them.

He will probably blame Microsoft, Windows or the "onehunglow" crowd.

Reads like not changing the default password plays a role. As does enabling remote management, you can't make any OS secure without at least changing publicly known passwords.

Trouble is some of these devices have hardcoded admin accounts that cannot be disabled.

Similar to the debacle with 'security' cameras.
