The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began discussing the potential ban of open source firmware on WiFi routers in March of 2015.

The R6400, recently released and announced by NETGEAR, is an AC1750 router capable of 450 Mbps of theoretical throughput -- a lot of performance for the price. The R6400 replaces the much loved R6300, offering better performance and a similar feature set to the R7000
The Heartbleed vulnerability allows an attacker to read random 64k blocks of memory of the service using OpenSSL (with TLS). Since every request delivers another 64k memory block an attacker could retrieve sensitive data from the service i.e. private keys. More detailed information about Heartbleed can be found in the security advisory:
