Automated router upgrade, wtf?

I got a message from my internet provider informing me that they would start a remote upgrade of my router in order to improve security, and they would start it, NOW! Oh, and the router configuration would be deleted in the process…wtf??

Jeez, ain’t that a great way to satisfy your customer…NOT!

And I don’t want to know what this so called improved security means; I guess that the router software is now filled with sniffing and tracking ‘features’,ย  bye bye bittorrent… ๐Ÿ™
