    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

    OpenSource means that you can take the source, audit it and / or compile it yourself.
    Also the company was founded by Chinesse and they must be proud of that, but based and managed in San Jose CA | USA so they must accomplish FCC to sell not only in US, but worldwide!
    They are a good StartUp example on how small ideas grown to final product which is simple enought for end-users w/o technical knowledge and we the technical peope who cooperate of evolving of this dream have no doubt of security conecrn followed by the stuff, the members and the community!
    Best regards!

    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?

    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.
