      As for getting it on the news about the security problem, try BBCs watchdog first, they love stuff like this.

      ^^To either release it or put it on a public domain. I am sick and tired of having to go through the painful disconnection of when the SNR drops below 5. And when i have had a record update yea get this 143hours..staying connected..the router decides its going to have a quick Nap and reboots its self!

      Meaning no disrespect but I doubt whether Sky will worry too much even if you were to take some form of action, I would be very surprised if they were legally obliged to update firmware at all.

      Why is that so much of a nuisance to you so that you feel you are culpably damaged by Sky's actions, or rather, lack of?

      I am not trying to say it isn't or you are not; just trying to understand why.

      Well isnt there any mileage in the fact that Sky/Sagem appear to be trouncing all over the GPL for the router OS?

      Oh and a quick heads up to anyone in Sky Public Relations, I'm going public on the security flaw on the V1 router, so get your act together, because there's going to be a fair bit of brown stuff flying in your direction pretty soon.
      James, nice to see that you're famous

      Nice, lets hope the BBC or some other type gets hold of this story as well.

      Maybe will make Sky sit up and take note.
