What is the and the issue.

400 new securaty problems have just been announced for 40% of the devices in our pockets. This same story happens every month or so... these problems are at the chip level and can never be fixed in the device in your pocket.

Our "phones" are as complex as anything built by human beings. Think the British or Roman empire level of complexity siting in your pocket feeding you social media updates.

@witchescauldron
Vulnerabilities in forty percent of devices sounds bad.

Where did you read about this?

This is why we get uneasy when we hear things like, "the wifi and modem code is closed source but the rest is open".

This stuff needs to be open-source, decentralised and free license! Are we forgetting anything?

The day is coming when everyone will print their own chips from source :)
