So my worries remain... how do they address this?
You don't mean that we have to wait for the next 0-day for the VMware
claim to be proved false? There are coding vulnerabilities everywhere.

We could wait for the next 0day of HP procurve, Cisco Catalyst or Dell
PowerConnect firmware as well ;)

The history of software bugs so far tells us that, until now, the chance to have
a 0day of a firewall is greater than the chance of the 0day of a switch firmware.

I am not telling that switches are bulletproof, I am only talking about probability.
