    There's an informative HN discussion: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=21312609

    I'm not entirely surprised that a PR flack wasn't aware of remote maintenance stuff.

    But I am surprised that their engineers didn't get it locked down. I mean, I do -- and I'm just an amateur/hobbyist.
