    Tony, are you referring to a vendor supply chain attackr? As in "a modification to core Firewalla device by 3rd party" during foreign manufacturing, handling, distribution?

    I think if someone wants to deploy these chips (if they exist), they probably have a better chance just put into your router.   The routers get all of your traffic, and it is a lot more popular, plus ... complex.   Hence hardware attack will be harder to detect.  Now, if you look at the Firewalla boards, they are probably the simplest you can find ...  And if these guys really know what they are doing, put them directly in devices is even better. 

    If the attack is software, and assume you trust firewalla company and open source, we allow you to throw away the SD card and burn your own from the image off github.com

    well... isn't the company Chinese? didn't the US government block Chinese company Huawei for security concerns because the if the Chinese government tell a Chinese company to put something in the device to spy they have to do it.
