We are well into the "Internet of Things" era for the Internet. Billions of devices are expected and it is not uncommon to find a dozen or even a score of Internet-enabled devices in residences and offices around the world. These systems run on software - some of which has not been well tested for safety and security. We need to introduce and promote an ethic of software safety and extended maintenance to protect the users of these devices. Software updates must be assured of integrity before installation. Consumers have a right to expect support for the lifetime of the devices. What could possibly go wrong?
