the article is a joke. I'm not talking about the researchers, but about citing a statement like:
„However, those same firmware binaries did not employ other common security
features like ASLR or stack guards, or did so only rarely,“
Look at the source-code of the mentioned vendors. They partially use 18 years old kernel code and
Telnet-like management interfaces.
