I acquired two Antminer S4's from two different sources... both of them coincidentally had File system from: Fri Oct 3 18:17:17 CST 2014 (I am assuming original firmware) is there a good reason not to update to the most current firmware for this unit of: initramfs.bin.SD-20150415.tar.gz which seems to be from 4-15-15 or are these left at original firmware for good cause?

Thanks for any insight...

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.
