Insecure Consumers

I wrote years ago about how I thought it was obnoxious that broadband providers couldn't be bothered to spend a few extra dollars on memory to embed firewalls in their modems. No idea how widespread this is, but consumers yanking broadband and chucking PCs due to malware doesn't do much for the future of the networked home. Who bears the support costs for these issues? Dell? Verizon? SBC?
