Hi folks,

You've probably seen the Slashdot article about (lack of) security gains in router firmware. https://yro.slashdot.org/story/19/08/16/2050219/huge-survey-of-firmware-finds-no-security-gains-in-15-years The original article on Security Ledger is at: https://securityledger.com/2019/08/huge-survey-of-firmware-finds-no-security-gains-in-15-years/

Two questions:

1) Does anyone know if the researchers looked at OpenWrt?

2) If not, how would OpenWrt stable or snapshot have fared in the analysis? Do we enable stack guards, ASLR, etc. on all builds?
