Consumables

"The problem is pretty obvious: much of the industry is treating products as consumables, and any attention that's paid to security is focussed on the first buyer."

This has ALWAYS been the problem. The consumer model is broken because vendors only ever consider their own leg of the product lifecycle - sourcing components and materials from suppliers, and selling the product to consumers. Often no thought is put into where the raw materials actually come from, nor what happens to the product when it becomes waste after the end consumer finishes with it ... which has long led to serious environmental and social consequences which capitalist society does its best to ignore.
