Comment: Chinese Control Most Firewalls

(See in situ)

Chinese Control Most Firewalls

Most consumer firewalls are made with Chinese controlled Software. Most of these phone home using two different methods on a frequent basis.

When they boot you see them send out a hardcoded udp or tcp to an ip address that does not respond. I wonder what is going to happen the day they turn on the "responding" ip.

Also more and more consumer firewalls have formal firmware updates that phone home to the official software distibution point and self update. Once again they self update with chinese controlled and chinese software.

Buy and keep around an older consumer firewall from 3 or 4 years ago - just in case.
