Netgear has quietly decided not to patch more than 40 home routers to plug a remote code execution vulnerability – despite security researchers having published proof-of-concept exploit code.

Today Netgear's advisory page for the patches shows 45 devices' fix status as "none; outside security support period".

It's about time that there is a minimum, 10+ years, support lifetime for products. Companies move more and more to "throw away, buy again" methods which are in no way acceptable.
