Re: And according to a rumour

or using unauthorized hardware peripheral devices

I so love it when it's no longer me who is in charge of purchase and IT deployment decisions but an untrusted 3rd party which demands absolving them from ANY responsibility and liability whatsoever as mandatory requirement to use their products.

Netgear didn't pay us tithes? Well, they're no longer authorised. Oh, bugger, slight mistake, better send out a patch. Ah. Those machines are now offline. Damn.

What could possibly go wrong?

Honestly, I don't know why companies have lawyers if they don't see this as a massive operational risk. That stupid little one-liner in their T&Cs is IMHO enough to bar it from coming near anything sensitive.
