It's extremely easy.

I really wonder about this discussion.
The problem is, that the manufacturers did not even tried to make their devices secure.
Fixed passwords?
20 years ago - ok.
Today? - Just let them pay the invoice.
For example, if a device is misused in an attack, then the Manufacturer has to pay 10$ per sold device for the 1st attack. 20$ for the 2nd attack.

I'm pretty sure they'll follow basic security rules extremely fast and they will offer patches in no time.

Kind regards, Tom
