[ih] Internet milestone - The Refrigerator Strikes Back (Jack Haverty)

I think the main danger today is wireless gateways where you
can log in with admin/admin.

I even encountered an ISP in the UK that set the password on
all its consumer gateways to "password". When they say
"Enter password" you do exactly that.

Of course it's irresponsible but if they do that, why would
they do better for a fridge?

Those who do not learn from history, etc.
