For what they do, their chips are quite expensive?
You can buy a couple of CH340 breakout boards with shipping from eBay/AliExpress for the same price as a single FTDI chip.
How can there be side effects if the only modification is changing a specific already damaged gene back to it's known healthy setting?

'Operating System' is giving it a bit more credit.
And the protocol between the SIM and the phone is public, well known and very simple.
You can see exactly what it's doing.
You forget that SSL provides two benefits, not one.
1. No one can intercept the communication and read the messages. No one cares for driver updates so yep you would be perfectly safe letting everyone on your network read the driver files.

Put two LaZer X cards in your computer and the second one will simulate your own brain's state after a brief scan, and will play the game just as you would but without having to actually be near the PC.
Err thats not quite how things work.....
They haven't admitted they had a backdoor.
They've only admitted they had a 'management authentication issue'.
Just like many companies are coming under 'advanced persistent threat' attacks.

The attack has 'advanced' in the title!
