SwOS: Default passwords illegal in California

Fri Nov 13, 2020 7:55 am

Hi there.

I wanted to point out something about the CSS610; it ships with SwOS lite which uses default passwords.

These are now illegal in the state of California.

Other network equipment manufacturers are modifying firmware to have passwords based on the serial number of the device; I want to know when Mikrotik will be complying?

Just for internet connected devices made for home usage. SwOS is used in switches, although you can connect directly to the internet it is not something I recommend for obvious reasons...
