I installed on my Linksys router Tomato firmware.

I saw

and now don't understand how security updates work. It can't be that there is no vulnerability since 2010.

    Several problems here. You assume that the firmware is still being maintained. If you read the wiki, you will see that there are forks.

Development of the official Tomato firmware has indeed been discontinued since 2010 with version 1.28 being the latest release.

Wikipedia has a nice comparison table of various forks that have been created since then. Although it has a focus on Linksys routers, you can find current information on actively developed Tomato mods in this forum. The AdvancedTomato firmware (a fork from Shibby mod) is one possible option with fairly frequent updates.

That said, I find it suspicious that Tomato seems to have a very short record of publicly known vulnerabilities. This could either be due to well-written code or indicate that there has not been a lot of auditing since then.
