Many of them are based on Linux and allow

Forgive my ignorance, but what does the authentication problem (or
lack thereof) have to do with linux/uclibc/busybox? It seems to be a
manufacturer problem (for example, Actiontec) or an  integrator
problem (such as Verizon or Comacast), unless I am missing something.

For the integrator, it's a warning flag: "53 companies have made this same
identical mistake, don't be the 54th".

For the black hats, it's low-hanging fruit.
