Default

My sense is that

- many manufacturers stop issuing firmware upgrades after a couple of years since there isn't any money to be made by doing so,

- even when they do, most home users don't know about firmware upgrades and so don't apply them,

- let alone applying OpenWRT or DDWRT where possible,

- most home users don't change the default credentials due to lack of knowledge.

So there are a lot of devices out there that are potentially easy pickings.
