“We’ve blurred the line between hardware and software suppliers with companies like Lenovo, Apple, Samsung and HTC. When the vulnerability is in software supplied by the same company delivering the hardware, the economic impact and remediation options necessarily shift. These blurred-line companies have a vested interest in avoiding solutions that simply replace the vulnerable software with another vendor.”[/su_note]
