Re: Software update required

These firmware updates you speak of, I wonder, will they have a secure (unique)keys on the hardware to verify the authenticity of said firmware to stop miscreants loading their own and taking control of the smart meter?

Probably not...

So if someone does take control which is very likely going to happen the who is going to pay to have the useless piles of garbage removed and replaced? Us again?

I wonder what is happening to the old meters? Might be an opportunity to buy and sell back.
